The registration fee for ISSAS is 1800 CHF on average (slight changes depending on type of room chosen). The price includes registration, full board and accommodation, but no transportation to Bogis-Bossey. For those with financial difficulties, a few (partial) fee waivers are available. Waivers are applied for at the same time as applying for a place at the summer school. However, to apply for a waiver, you must provide evidence that you have already obtained/been denied funding from other institutions or concrete proof that the rules of the relevant agencies will not allow you to apply yet. Therefore, if you intend to request a waiver during the school application, contact your funding agencies ASAP. Please, read more here.

The Château de Bossey is located in Bogis-Bossey, 20 km away from Geneva.
Geneva is easily accessible by plane and train:

From the Geneva airport you can take a train directly into the Geneva railway station (Cornavin), where you can take a regional train to Nyon or Coppet.

From there take the local bus (line 811) to the stop "Céligny, village" (the bus runs every half an hour from the Nyon train station to the Coppet train station, and back. "Céligny, village" is the stop halfway between the two stations). The chateau is 20 minutes away on foot from "Céligny, village". Just turn left at the bus stop, towards the townhall ("mairie" - look for the flags). At the "mairie" take a sharp right into Route de Coudres. Go straight on for a while, past the "Auberge de Céligny" and past the "Service du Feu", and when you arrive at the first major intersection simply turn left following directions towards the "Institut oecuménique".
