Telluride Association is a nonprofit whose mission is to prepare and inspire promising students to lead and serve through free, transformative educational experiences rooted in critical thinking and democratic community. Our educational programs, offered at no cost to their participants, prepare promising individuals—through intellectual inquiry, democratic self-government, and meaningful work—to define and discharge their obligations to humanity by developing the skills, knowledge, and strength of character necessary to do so.
Applications are now being evaluated, and you will hear back from us by mid-March. Learn more about the timeline here.
Free summer programs in Critical Black Studies and Anti-Oppressive Studies offer sophomores and juniors the opportunity to encounter new ideas and meet peers who are excited about learning.
Students at Telluride Association’s residential houses at Cornell University and the University of Michigan receive full room and board scholarships and shape their intellectual communities.
The success of Telluride’s programs depends on the generosity of our friends and associates!
