Limited travel funds are available for student participation. We anticipate that approximately six students from national or international schools can receive airfare support. If you would like to recommend a student for travel support or would like to request it, please indicate that in your registration.
Attendees should fly into Denver International Airport (DIA), which is about 45 miles from Boulder. Visit DIA's Ground Transportation site.
The Boulder Super Shuttle departs from the airport every hour at 10 minutes past the hour from 6:10 am to 11:10 pm. The cost is $20 one-way, $38 round trip. Group discounts are available. Stop at the shuttle ticket counter to purchase tickets and they will let you know where the shuttle departs (Departure location changes because of construction at DIA.).
