The 2013 Summer School has been made possible with the generous financial support of the International Political Science Association, the University of São Paulo, and a variety of public sector research funding agencies in Brazil. As a result of this support, there was no tuition charged for courses. However, students were responsible for their own expenses in São Paulo, including travel to and from São Paulo, room and board, transportation and entertainment.
Unfortunately, the School could not provide scholarships, nor travel grants.
Successful applicants deposit a non-refundable registration fee to guarantee their place in the Summer School. Because the registration fees were a guarantee of student enrollment and were used to plan and pay for certain expenses prior to the Summer School, registration fees were not reimbursed under any circumstances. Upon notification of acceptance, students payed their registration fee no later than midnight on November 30, 2012 to guarantee that their slot was reserved. After that date, the selection committee filled any remaining and unreserved spaces with those candidates next in line on the admissions list.
 
The registration fees were as follows*:
Graduate students (M.A. and Ph.D. candidates):    US$350
Professors at institutions of higher education:    US$700
Members of the public sector and NGOs    US$ 900
Members of the private sector:    US$1,100
(*) Registration fees for individual one-week courses were US$ 200; US$400, US$ 500 and US$600, respectively.
 
In Brazilian Reais (R$), the fees were the following*:
Graduate students (M.A. and Ph.D. candidates):    R$ 720
Professors at institutions of higher education:    R$ 1.440
Members of the public sector and NGOs    R$ 1.845
Members of the private sector:    R$2.255
(*) Registration fees for individual one-week courses were be R$ 410; R$820, R$ 1.025 and R$1.230, respectively.
