Our application cycle is open!!
The house member application to the Telluride House is available here and a letter of recommendation guide that you are encouraged to send to the individuals writing letters on your behalf is available here.
The application is designed to be challenging but not intimidating. It consists of several essays on a variety of topics and serves to inform the house about you are as a person and your interest and dedication to the pillars upon which our community rests: self-governance, community service, and intellectual inquiry. There is no model applicant. The house accepts members as much for their artistic portfolios or scientific research as it does for their personal or professional experiences. As such, we encourage you to be genuine and reflective and highly recommend that you invest a significant amount of time into writing and revising the essays.
