Participation Cost

In order to provide access to this program to as many individuals as possible, and thanks to the sponsorship and the institutional support of the ICD, we are able to offer the participation in the program for a subsidized participation cost of $275; If offered a place in the program, applicants are then required to transfer the participation cost of $275 to secure their place.

Since the participation cost is already subsidized and due to the considerable costs involved in developing and executing the program, no scholarships or further financial support for participants is available.
