Telluride Association creates free educational programs that challenge young people to build community, learn together, and make democratic decisions in order to think critically about the world and begin to create a more just society.
Telluride Association Summer Seminar (TASS) is a tuition-free, six-week, transformative summer educational experience rooted in critical thinking and democratic community.
TASS applications are open to all high school sophomores and juniors (“rising juniors” and “rising seniors”). Both US and international students are welcome to apply. While TASS welcomes applications from high school sophomores or juniors of all backgrounds, students from historically underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply. We seek students who are intellectually curious, community-minded, and self-motivated. Learn more about TASS here.
Are you passionate about guiding the next generation of leaders, through critical thinking, democratic community building, and personal growth? We are now hiring Site Supervisors and Factotums for our 2024 Telluride Association Summer Seminars! Learn more and apply here.
The success of Telluride’s programs depends on the generosity of our friends and associates!
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.
