  2. Organizers cover travel to and from Bazaleti (from Tbilisi), accommodation, stationary and meals, there is no program fee as well. So you may consider it as a scholarship. But you will have to cover yor personal expenses, since no additional allowance is provided, as well as travel costs to Tbilisi. Anyway, you can ask the organizers if some additional travel grants are available.
