depts.washington.edu/cscy/

The Halbert and Nancy Robinson Center for Young Scholars at the University of Washington is a national leader in recognizing and serving the needs of gifted young college and pre-college students. The Center is the gateway through which academically talented students can enter the UW after two or fewer years of secondary school through the Transition School/Early Entrance Program and the UW Academy for Young Scholars. It promotes these young UW scholars through mentoring, advising, and support services during their pre-college and undergraduate years, and conducts longitudinal follow-up studies to monitor and refine program activities. The Center also creates and pursues knowledge about the expressions and challenges of giftedness and disseminates this knowledge through courses, scholarly forums, community activities, and in-service programs for K-12 school personnel.
