Personal Information


Please provide an itemized budget, including all transportation and accommodation expenses.  All budgets must be submitted in U.S. dollars.  The below information is provided to help estimate costs.

Participants should arrive to Stockholm Arlanda International Airport (ARN) and arrange transportation from the airport to Gävle, approximately 140 km north of the airport. We recommend taking the train (costs vary between $32 to $80 one direction; cheapest ticket is with 1 change in Uppsala) but bus or rental car are also common options.

Independent of your city of origin and available flight arrival times, we suggest to arrive on 25 August (Sunday) in Gävle. The summer school is scheduled for the whole week including Friday afternoon, thus we recommend departure on 31 August (Saturday) at the earliest. We have reserved rooms at selected hotels for the 6 nights from 25-31 August. Costs per person include breakfast and are approximately $126/night for a single room and $74/night per person for a double room.

All lunches and coffee breaks will be provided, as well as dinner Monday and Thursday nights.  There is no registration fee.

Please note that due to limited funds, you might be offered a partial grant.
