The Center for Gifted Studies is proud to host the Kentucky Recognition Ceremony for the Duke Talent Identification Program.
The Duke University Talent Identification Program is a nonprofit educational organization founded in 1980 and is a major leader in identifying academically talented students and providing innovative programs to support the optimal development of their educational potential.
Western Kentucky University has hosted the Kentucky Recognition Ceremony for Duke's Talent Identification Program since 1982. Each May, some of the most academically talented seventh graders in the Commonwealth are honored at WKU. These students took the ACT or SAT and earned qualifying scores.
The Center would like to thank the Teachers Insurance Annuity Association - College Retirement Equities Fund and the Kentucky Education Saving Plan Trust administered by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority for their sponsorship of the Duke TIP Kentucky Recognition Ceremony.
More information on the Duke Talent Identification program can be found at their website.
