Lorena Aviles Wins Summer Scholarship at Cornell University


Ithaca, NY -- Lorena Aviles, a junior at Warren Township High School, has been awarded a full scholarship to the 2012 Telluride Association Summer Program at Cornell University, “Democracy and Diversity.” This year Telluride Association is cosponsoring four programs, two with Cornell University and two with the University of Michigan. These six-week-long educational programs involve college-level seminars for gifted and highly motivated high school juniors.

Admission to the TASPs is highly selective. This year’s 64 participants were chosen from 1,354 applications from all parts of the United States and abroad. The Telluride Summer Programs solicit applicants from high scorers on the Educational Testing Service’s PSAT and receive recommendations of potential applicants from school teachers and counselors.

Telluride Association is an independent not-for-profit educational organization that has offered Summer Programs to high school juniors of exceptional promise since 1954. Educators wishing to nominate a student for the 2013 TASP are encouraged to visit the Telluride Association website at www.tellurideassociation.org.
