Learning Opportunities

TASS For Sophomores

This summer, thirty-six bright, motivated high school sophomores will participate in one of two challenging six-week college-level courses in African American studies and other fields at the University of Michigan and Indiana University.  Telluride works with university faculty to create exciting courses designed to inspire young people to explore the the histories, politics and cultural experiences of people of African descent and a variety of other topics.  Because we believe that students should have the opportunity to pursue their ideals, we cover all the program costs, including tuition, books, room and board, field trips, and facilities fees.

TASP - For Juniors

A Telluride Association Summer Program (TASP) is a six-week educational experience for high school juniors that offers challenges and rewards rarely encountered in secondary school or even college.  Each program is designed to bring together young people from around the world who share a passion for learning. Telluride students, or TASPers, attend a seminar led by college and university faculty members and participate in many other educational and social activities outside the classroom.


Some summer programs may have tuition & fees but many offer at least partial financial aid/scholarship opportunities. Application submission dates and deadlines vary but some are open for submission now!
