Application Form for 2019 Telluride School on Theoretical Chemistry (TSTC)

The TSTC is intended for individuals from one of the following groups:

  • Recent or soon-to-be theory Ph.D.s who need to acquire knowledge outside their graduate and postdoctoral experiences
  • Recent or soon-to-be experimental Ph.D.s in chemistry or related fields who use theory in their research
  • Faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions (PUI) who want to incorporate theory into their classes

The TSTC “Application Window” opens November 01, 2018. All applications must be submitted by February 1, 2019. We will inform you by email no later than February 28, 2019 whether or not you have been admitted. Your application and registration are two different processes. If you are accepted, you must then register at to pre-pay for registration and lodging. Registration for accepted applicants must be completed by March 15, 2019. Keep in mind that the registration fee and lodging fee will not be refunded or reimbursed if you cancel your participation after April 30, 2019.

Most TSTC participants are reimbursed for most expenses. You must be present in Telluride during the week of the TSTC to receive the reimbursement, and participants will be reimbursed on-site the last day of the summer program. As in the past, we expect to offset the costs of the registration fee, minimal housing costs, and payment for modest meals. Participants are expected to obtain support for their travel costs. Successful applicants will be informed of the exact reimbursement schedule in the acceptance letter. Good luck and thank you for your interest in TSTC.

If applicable, please include a letter from your current graduate or postdoctoral advisor affirming their support for your participation at the TSTC.
