ABOUT THE TELLURIDE HOUSE SCHOLARSHIP
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Telluride house is a residential community at the University of
Michigan that offers full room and board scholarships to University
students, based on a selective application process. The scholarships,
renewable for up to five years, offer a unique living experience
filled with intellectual stimulation, challenging leadership
development opportunities, and a host of avenues for thoughtful
engagement in governance and community service. Past winners of the
Telluride scholarship include a diverse set of luminaries such as
philosopher Francis Fukuyama, postmodern scholar Gayatri Spivak, Nobel
prize winning physicist Steven Weinberg and World Bank President Paul
Wolfowitz.

The house is located on the corner of Washtenaw and Cambridge, a short
walk from Central Campus. The thirty or so residents comprise students
ranging from freshmen to doctoral students from all over the
university, as well as a few visiting faculty guests from around the
world. Life at the house revolves around democratic self-governance,
an exciting intellectual environment that includes student and faculty
talks, and an annual service project planned and executed by
residents. The house is beautiful and spacious, with a fine library, a
talented and dedicated full-time chef, free cable, UM backbone
Internet access, and excellent recreational facilities.

Applications are available online at www.telluride-house.org and must
be received no later than 9AM October 21, 2008.

We will also be holding an informational dinner at the Telluride House
on October 3rd. This is a great chance to come and see the House as
well as meet some of the Housemembers.
