The cost of the School will be about CHF 1550 per student, and will cover tuition, board and lodging from dinner on Wednesday 13 March to breakfast on Tuesday 26 March 2019, as well as coffee, tea or cold drinks during the morning and afternoon breaks, in addition to some social activities. The fee does not include travel expenses from participants' home institutes to Córdoba and back, visa fees (where required), or the cost of insurance covering illness and accidents that is required for all participants.
Thanks to support from funding bodies in Argentina, in addition to CERN and CIEMAT, it will be possible to fully or partly cover the school fees and/or travel expenses for some of the Latin-American students who otherwise would not be able to attend the School. However, since the central funds are limited, we hope and expect that the majority of the institutes will be able to cover fully, or at least partially, the expenses of their students. This will allow the School to contribute the fees and/or travel costs for the largest possible number of Latin-American students who are not able to obtain full financial support from their home institutes. Comments on the need for financial support should be given at the end of the application form.
Students who are not from Latin America are normally expected to have the school fees and travel cost covered fully by their institutes, although exceptions could be made for well-motivated cases from developing countries outside of Latin America.
Details concerning the method of payment of the fees will be sent together with the acceptance letters. At the same time, funded students will be informed of the procedures to be followed for making travel arrangements and applying for visas (where required).
