Questions concerning the application process (or the school in general) can be addressed to golub2017(at)

Applying for Financial Support

The generous sponsorship from SIAM makes it possible that all selected participants will have their lodging and meals covered by the school. In addition, we will (at least partially) reimburse reasonable travel costs upon application. If you require travel support, then please submit a brief statement indicating the expected amount with your application. A request of funding will not influence the decision on admission to the school.

While it is our goal to refund expenses for as many participants as we can, we cannot make guarantees at this point. Candidates are strongly encouraged to inquire whether travel support is available with their advisor or institution. Funding decisions will be communicated in the notification letters of the successful candidates.
