Here are some frequently asked questions from previous years.

How much does ICMF cost?

Does ICMF provide housing & transportation?

  • ICMF is happy to provide free housing to all our participants on the Columbia University Morningside Heights campus.

  • ICMF does not provide transportation to-and-from New York City, but we’re happy to discuss cost-effective options for participants’ travels.

What is CMS’ role in ICMF?

I’m not a performer, but I’d still like to help out. Can I join the team?
