Welcome to TAG Programs @ Oregon State University

Due to Covid-19, we have moved the dates of our summer TAG program.  Our program is now scheduled to take place August 3 - 14.  We are still working out the details of how we will operate as we are going to need to use distancing practices and adhere to stricter safety protocol.  This will still prove to be a fun and educational two weeks for our talented and gifted students.

OSU Talented and Gifted (TAG) Youth Programs provide educationally challenging and dynamic environments enhanced by interaction with adult experts and collaboration with peers.

TAG Programs seek to:

  • Provide engaging academic programming which is appropriate for talented and gifted youth, including those from traditionally underserved groups (e.g., underrepresented minorities, low-income, rural, and first-generation)
  • Allow exploration of interests not available in a regular school setting.
  • Connect TAG youth with adults who are enthusiastic about their field.
  • Enable interactions with other participants who share the same interests.
  • Introduce participants to possible career options.
