TADAS Scholarship • TADAS applications are now closed.
The 2020 Telluride Association Convention established the TASS Alumni Development and Support (TADAS) Scholarship in honor of the former Telluride Administrative Director Ellen Baer’s twenty years of service to the Telluride Association and commitment to TASS participants. The purpose of this scholarship is to offer targeted support to alumni of our TASS program beyond high school and throughout their higher educational endeavors. The TADAS scholarship is part of our broader commitment to combating educational inequity, through providing resources otherwise inaccessible or unaffordable to some of our alumni.
In 2021, we are offering up to twenty scholarships in the amount of up to $5,000 each to be awarded to TASS alumni who are undertaking a program of post-secondary study. These scholarships are designed to make higher education more affordable and accessible to our TASS alumni.
Telluride Association has suspended its summer programs in 2021. Please check back here next Fall for information on our renewed offerings for 2022 and beyond.
TASS • TASS applications are now closed.
The Telluride Association Sophomore Seminar (TASS) offers bright, motivated high school sophomores challenging six-week college-level courses in critical Black and ethnic studies. We work 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. Students with financial need may apply for additional assistance with travel costs and a subsidy to replace summer earnings.
TASP • TASP applications are now closed.
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. Participants (“TASPers”) attend a seminar led by college and university faculty members and participate in many other educational and social activities outside the classroom. 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. Students with financial need may apply for additional assistance with travel costs and a subsidy to replace summer earnings.
