  • Air Fare: We will pay for air fare directly.
  • Hotel: We will pay for hotel directly.
  • Meals in Madison, WI: We will provide breakfast, lunch, and two group dinners (Sunday & Thursday). You will need to pay for the other dinners and we will reimburse you for up to $20/day. (We are not allowed to pay for alcohol, just food.) You will need to save your receipts to show what you actually paid for. Details about how to receive your reimbursement will be provided when you arrive at the school.
  • Meals while traveling: Unfortunately, we cannot cover meals while traveling.

Hotel Arrangements OSG Summer School

Once we have your confirmation that you will be coming to the school, we will organize hotel for you if you are from out of town. You only need to email us,, with your itinerary. We'd like your itinerary because we'll try to arrange for the hotel shuttle to pick up groups of you when you arrive at the airport.

We will make hotel reservations, but only for the nights of July 18-22. (That is, arriving on the 18th and checking out on the 23rd.) If you want to come earlier or stay later, you will need to make separate arrangements. Because we are paying for your hotel directly, you must make a separate reservation if you wish to extend your stay.

We will cover your basic hotel cost. However, when you check in you will need to provide a credit card. This will cover any additional expenses you have on top of the room cost, such as meals in the hotel restaurant, movies, etc.

International Students

If you are not a US citizen, you must bring your passport, visa or green card, and I-9 with you to the school. This is required for us to process your reimbursements.
