    TASS - Sophomore Seminar

    General Information

    This summer, 56 intellectually curious high school sophomores ("rising juniors") will participate in one of three challenging six-week college-level seminars on topics related to Critical Black and Ethnic Studies. The seminars will be held at Cornell University, Indiana University, and the University of Michigan.

    TASP - Junior Seminar

    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 scholars and participate in many other educational and social activities outside the classroom.Students attend TASPs because they want a personal and intellectual challenge. Telluride Association seeks students from all kinds of educational backgrounds who demonstrate intellectual curiosity and motivation, rather than prior knowledge of the seminar's subject matter.  TASPers participate solely for the pleasure and rewards of learning with other intelligent, highly motivated students of diverse backgrounds.  The TASP offers no grades or college credit.
