Scholarship Program
Each year, MAGE offers the Nicholas Green Award scholarship to support a student in grades 3-6 with exemplary potential in one or more topic areas.  The scholarship (up to $500) can be used to defray the costs for an enrichment program (summer camp, online course, etc.).  More than one award may be given per year.  
Click here to download instructions and application forms for the 2016 Nicholas Green Award.  The deadline for applying is April 15th.
This award was made possible through a generous donation from the Green family, which was administered by NAGC (National Association for Gifted Children). Nicholas was a bright seven-year old who was killed in a senseless shooting while on vacation in Italy. His parents wanted to keep his memory alive, and they donated money they had saved for his college expenses to fund this award.
