Fees and Options

Every year CSI grants a significant number of tuition discounts based on talent and financial need.

We encourage all students who would like to take part in CSI to apply regardless of their financial situation.  Every effort will be made to make it possible for all talented students to attend.
Special and limited financial help is available for students coming from countries with poorer economies.

To apply for a scholarship for your tuition fee, check the 'Scholarship' box on myCSI Course info page and follow the instructions. You will need to send a letter of reference from your teacher, a photo, and explain your financial need.

Should you need a social discount on Housing and Food Costs, you can ask for social discount on myCSI Housing and food page. You will be required to give detailed explanation and upload an official document supporting your need (if available).

Financial help is not available for travel costs.

Please note that despite our willing to help, financial aid cannot be guaranteed. 



Registration fee is 20 for students, youth section, choir members and passive participants.

In case of participation the registration fee will be included in the tuition. Otherwise the registration fee is non-refundable.

Registration fee should be sent within 8 days of submitting the application in myCSI.
Please note that application will not be processed before arrival of the registration fee.

There is no registration fee for visitors. However application and check-in on the spot enables them to participate even in some events that are not open to the public.


Please note:
The participation fee to be paid is the sum of Tuition Fee and Housing and Food Costs.
