Hi,
this idea about a summer school seems great! However, I have a couple
of questions:

1) Why does the school cost $2500?
2) There seem to be some scholarships available, but sending an email
to  Wolfram Research I was told that they are offering a student rate
of (only) $1000, thus barely covering the expenses and that does not
cover the plane tickets I guess.

This amount is prohibitive for international participants, even for EU
citizens (due to the "strong" euro), therefore I don't think I will
even consider applying, despite the fact I would really love to
participate ... :-(

Any comments on this (especially from Wolfram Research) are welcome.

Cheers,
Savvas
