Much of the cost of operating SIMUW is funded by the donations of an anonymous donor couple. Their generosity allows us to reduce the SIMUW fee to per participant for the six weeks. We are in the process of raising additional funds, with the goal of ensuring that anyone offered admission to SIMUW whose family cannot afford to pay the full fee will be able to attend. Financial need should not be a factor in your decision to apply.
