Registration Fees and Scholarships

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 school will be Online. The school will combine synchronous and asynchronous sessions. Initially, we expect the synchronous sessions to comprise ~3 hours per day.

Even though there are costs associated to the execution of the online school, thanks to funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) as well as the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM/UChile), REUNA and ANID in Chile, most students selected from U.S. and Chilean institutions will receive full scholarships that cover all the school cost. In addition, thanks to funding from CEDIA, students from Ecuadorian universities members of CEDIA are eligible for full scholarships too. Additionally, the CMM has made possible to offer scholarships to students in Latin American institutions. The scholarship application is part of the registration form, so students should be sure to identify their residency and/or citizenship and fill out the appropriate scholarship information on the registration form. Selected students non-eligible for scholarships will be required to cover their registration costs through their own funding sources.
