Financial support

In some cases (eg. applications from developing countries), applicants may be considered for financial support towards the School fee.

Please note that any consideration of support depends on your specific circumstances, as well as how many requests we receive. Therefore we cannot - and will not - provide you an estimate before you have applied to attend the School.

If you wish to make a request for financial support, please submit your complete CSC 2018 application, and send an e-mail to Computing.School@cern.ch to make an official request, explaining why you wish to be considered for financial support.

Please note we are not able to consider an applicant's suitability or eligibility without a complete application, including the supporting Reference Letter from your professor or supervisor.
