The CSAG Winter School is not currently financially supported through any funded project.  It therefore has a course fee attached which is used to support it as well as raise funds for participants who are struggling to secure finance. Each year we offer a limited number of scholarships for this purpose. Decisions on who will receive sponsorship is based on applications and decided upon by the Winter School Committee.



The course fee includes all materials necessary for the course, catering of lunches and teas during the course.

Due to the changes that we have implemented for this year’s course, we will not be assisting in the logistical booking of accommodation or transport for this course.
