I do agree with Savvas (message included below).

I am Mexican, I am the adviser of a new student-group of Mexican Mathematica
fans ( http://www.matecmatica.blogspot.com/ ) and I would love to send at
least one of my brilliant students to this school. They do have great
projects.

However our student-group is totally new, we are just finishing the
administrative procedure in our university (http://www.cem.itesm.mx ) for
registering as an official group, therefore we do not have any money yet,
and we cannot send a student this summer.

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
