2022 Field School Cancelled: We regret to inform you that due to unexpectedly low enrollment, we are making the difficult decision to cancel the Participatory Modeling Field School this summer. We plan to hold the Field School again in the summer of 2023. We will fully refund your field school registration. Please be sure to cancel any hotel or airline reservations. We hope to see you in 2023.

Fee table for the 2022 Modeling Field School
Type of Participant Price Registration
Regular (faculty, researchers, staff, etc.) $675 Regular Registration
Enrolled Student $475 Student Registration
Community Member $375 Community Registration

PLEASE NOTE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, our planning team may need to move the Field School to a virtual format. We plan to make a final decision by June 15. We are therefore advising registrants to delay making travel and lodging arrangements until this decision is announced. If the Field School moves to a virtual format, we will reduce registration fees substantially and refund the difference to anyone who has already paid the in-person fees and fully refund the registration of anyone who prefers not to attend a virtual session.


Some scholarships for enrolled students and community partners are available that will cover the cost of registration.

Refund Policy

If after you register your plans change and you cannot attend, you have two options:

1. Send a substitute – make sure your organization does not miss out on the valuable experience you had planned. You may substitute a colleague at any time with no charge or penalty; but please notify Julie Crowgey at or call at 517-884-1407 to ensure the change is made.

2. Ask for a refund – you may cancel your registration and get a refund without penalty if you let us know of your change in plans no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, August 5. Participants who cancel after will be subject to a $30.00 cancellation service charge. Please put your request in writing via email to Julie Crowgey at or call at 517-884-1407.

Please note: Those who register and simply do not attend will be liable for the entire fee. Non-paid no-shows registered will be billed. Paid registrants who do not show and do not call will not be eligible for a refund.
