    • The local organizer will cover 6 nights of the dormitory for international students (check in on June 14 and check out on June 20).  Students who want to stay outside of the duration of the summer school will need to find their own accommodation.   NUS has a number of cafeterias on the campus.  Each international student is expected to receive SGD 40 per day for a maximum of 5 days. The per diem is taxable and IMS will cover the tax.

    •  We expect a small budget to support the airfare of some participating students.
