Gifted Resources

To assist our students in achieving their educational goals, Duke TIP provides resources for their families and educators to help them navigate the issues of gifted education.

Research Digest is a trusted resource for parents who are looking for research-based information about rearing and educating academically talented children. The digest contains new and relevant information regarding the challenges gifted children face, social and emotional needs of gifted students and gifted program opportunities.

TIP's Opportunity Guide provides searchable information on academic programs, contests, and scholarship opportunities designed specifically for gifted students.

Just the Facts is a library of concise, fact-based, one-page hand-outs on key issues involving gifted education. These hand-outs can be used to educate yourself and in advocating for gifted services. They are an excellent way to teach lawmakers, members of the media, and school personnel about the research and facts behind modern gifted education.

TIPs for the College Bound provides guidance to gifted students and their parents on everything from planning a successful pre-college academic strategy to scheduling college visits and choosing the right school.
