Request for Applications

Gifted and Talented Education

Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.

Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) funding supports unique opportunities for high-achieving and underachieving students in public elementary and secondary schools in California who are identified as gifted and talented. Special efforts must be made to include students from economically disadvantaged and varying cultural backgrounds. The Legislature supports the development of a variety of program options and approaches to identification as long as this does not diminish service to identified students.
