The article aims to study the experience of solving some problematic issues of work with gifted students in some leading Russian universities. The material for the research was the “Road maps” (development program) of each university, as well as information from the official websites of universities. The analysis resulted in the model of interaction with intellectually gifted young people «search-development-support». Mechanisms to stimulate this category of people were systematized.
