15 Nov 2023 TASS Applications Open Now Through January 4, 2023
Applications are now open for the 2023 Telluride Association Summer Seminar! High school sophomores and juniors are welcome to apply for this life-changing summer experience. Applications are due January 4, 2023.
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. We admit applicants from all backgrounds, and welcome applications from Black and indigenous students, other students of color, and/or students who have experienced economic hardship. We seek students who are intellectually curious, community-minded, and self-motivated.
Students may apply to one of two areas of study:
- TASS-CBS (Critical Black Studies) offers seminars that explore topics within history, politics, literature, art, and other intellectual and cultural contributions from people of African descent.
- TASS-AOS (Anti-Oppressive Studies) considers systems of power and oppression including white supremacy, patriarchy, and classism, and considers ways to transform society.
The Telluride Association Summer Seminar (TASS) is a free, six-week summer educational experience for high school sophomores and juniors. TASS prepares and inspires promising young students to lead and serve through transformative educational experiences rooted in critical thinking and democratic community. Telluride Association covers all program costs for every student, including tuition, books, room and board, field trips, and facilities fees.
This year, TASS programs will run from June 25-August 5 at Cornell University, University of Maryland, and University of Michigan.
