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 public 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 in colleges ranging from the Law School to LS&A to Engineering to Music, 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, a computer lab and wireless internet, and excellent recreational facilities.
If you have questions, please come to the informational meeting at the Michigan League on September 17th at 8:00PM. We will also be holding an informational dinner at the Telluride House on October 8th, 6:00PM. This is a great chance to come and see the house as well as meet more housemembers.
