    We are excited to announce recent updates to the Young Scholars program Qualification Criteria! Please review the information on our website carefully for the latest information (http://www.davidsongifted.org/youngscholars/). After carefully considering these updates, our hope is that the application process will be streamlined for many families. You will notice that only one test – from those listed under IQ or Achievement or Talent Search/College Placement - is required. We have been working to finalize all the updates on our websites and to our online application system and would now appreciate your help in spreading the word to potential applicants. Many common questions regarding the program, application process, qualification criteria and other details are addressed in FAQs. If you cannot find the answer here, or if you or an applicant’s family have additional questions, please feel free to email ysapplications@davidsongifted.org.
