The Nicholas Green Foundation recognized a gifted student in each state, every year from 2000-2013. The 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.Although the money ran out in 2013, MAGE, together with the assistance of our sponsors, is continuing this recognition.
The recipient of the Nicholas Green Award will receive money towards participation in an enrichment program (i.e., summer camp, online course, etc.) of his/her choice. Funding to defray the costs of the program will be a maximum of $500. This scholarship depends on the donations of sponsors.
