Dear SIG applicant,

Thank you for your application to the Summer Institute for the Gifted. The following Recommendation Form may be used toward admittance into a 2021 SIG program if no local gifted program exists in your community and/or you are unable to submit qualifying test scores from standardized tests or talent searches. If your school does have a gifted and talented program that you attend, then the teacher should forward documentation of your participation to SIG and no further recommendation is required.

For the Innovators Program, (ages 9-17): Two completed Recommendation Forms are required. Please have both forms completed by educators who teach a core content area such as English language arts, math, science, or social studies and are familiar with your creative achievements, pursuits, and potential. Educators should be familiar with your current work and abilities, at least within the last two years.

For the Investigators Program, (ages 5-12): Two completed Recommendation Forms are required. Please have both forms completed by educators who teach a core content area such as English language arts, math, science, or social studies and are familiar with your creative achievements, pursuits, and potential. For students ages 5-8, a parent may complete a Parent Recommendation Form, which can be found online at 

If your school system is unable to provide a recommendation, we also will accept those prepared by private instructors including tutors or other instructors familiar with your accomplishments and abilities.

Directions:

An online form can be completed and submitted. Please provide the recommender the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Educator2020
He or she should not send a copy to you.

Be sure to provide these individuals with a link to the SIG website so that they can gain a better understanding of the nature of our programs.

When we have received both Recommendation Forms, we will review your entire application and notify you of your status. Please allow two weeks for review.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Sincerely, 
The SIG Team
