Due to the incredible generosity of Marilyn and Sigi Ziering and other supporters of BCI, we are able to offer BCI this summer at a regular cost of $600. If you apply by the Early Bird deadline of April 6, the cost is only $450. Scholarships and travel subsidies are available as needed and processed after a participant has been accepted into the program.
Payment for the Early Bird deadline is due on May 3, 2021. If you are accepted after the Early Bird deadline, payment is due within (2) weeks of your acceptance date. When you are accepted, you will receive information about payment, which can be done online (Visa or Mastercard only), or by mailed check (made out to "The Marilyn and Sigi Ziering BCI").
