        Dear Leonhardt,

        I am quite interested in this Summer School, but I’m struggling to find information about financial aid for this program. Could you perhaps assist me in that?

          Dear Dinara,
          Unfortunately, there is no financial support available for the courses at Maastricht Summer School. However, parts of our lectures are available for free on our website in the form of small tutorials: https://geomeans.com/getting-started/ Please let me know if you have any further questions.
          Kind regards,
          Leonhardt

            This is quite unfortunate. But thank you for the information. Perhaps I will just read the books that you suggested for the courses.

            Warm regards,

            Dinara

            Dear Dinara,
            Which courses are you specifically interested in? I could give you some direct links to some free tools and templates from the courses that are available on the website.
            Kind regards,
            Leonhardt
