Part E: Program Fee
Workshop participants will be responsible for their return airfare to Naha, Okinawa, for their transportation to and from Naha airport and some meals. In addition, they will pay a registration fee, currently estimated at $850. This includes double-occupancy accommodation, local transportation, speakers, and museum entry fees. Single occupancy is $300 extra.
We are offering several travel awards ranging between $700 and $1000. We encourage earlier applications to facilitate travel plans and to help JSA trip leaders make final arrangements for lodging in Okinawa. Earlier applicants will receive preference for a travel award, so there is some advantage to applying in early March.
A non-refundable $100 deposit will be due within 10 days of acceptance, with the balance due on April 24, 2017.
Payment instructions will be sent to the participants with successful applications.
The complete application, including your CV and letter of recommendation, must be submitted electronically no later than March 31, 2017.
