Join Us In Making a Meaningful Impact 



Your support  enables us to have a bigger hand in solving some of our world’s greatest challenges. There are many areas and programs to support -the Depot Project, our community outreach, scholarship program or hosting a scientist. Contributions of all sizes are appreciated.

Home Sweet Home

The Depot Project will preserve and restore an iconic National Historic Landmark building for community use while providing a year-round home for Telluride Science. In October 2020, with the generous support of our donors, Telluride Science purchased The Depot which will enable the organization to expand its workshop programming by 50% and further Telluride Science’s global impact on the advancement of science and technology. Fundraising for the Renovation Phase of this project is underway with $4 more to go. Renovations started in November 2022 and the Telluride Science & Innovation Center will make its grand debut in summer 2024.  Naming opportunities exist. Contact Mark for more information.

Community Outreach

To accelerate science and innovation on a global scale, Telluride Science must keep Telluride as affordable as possible so scientists can afford to come. In return, the organization is forced to operate on a very lean annual budget, while also financially supporting outreach programming like Town Talks and other interesting lectures and presentations.   Your support can not only help to sustain science in Telluride, but also allow Telluride Science to continue to offer and expand this valued community programming.

Scholarships & School Funds

The young scientists who are talented enough to be invited to Telluride Science workshops early in their career, eventually become the future of the organization. To keep Telluride affordable for this next generation of scientific and engineering thought leaders, Telluride Science offers the following scholarships to outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows:

  • R. Stephen Berry Postdoctoral Fellowship
  • Peter Salamon Award
  • Paul Barbara Fellowship

Telluride School on Theoretical Chemistry (TSTC) Endowment Fund – TSTC, founded by University of Utah’s Jack Simons, was Telluride Science’s original and flagship graduate-level summer school. This endowment biannually supports 28 graduate students with fundamental training in theoretical chemistry research.

Host a Scientist

Hosting a scientist for one week is a wonderful way to support Telluride Science as finding affordable lodging for our workshop attendees is a big challenge. If you are interested in hosting a scientist for five or six nights at an affordable rate in your guest house, condo, or home, please email Annie Carlson.
