Frequently Asked Questions

Is ISEC 2020 taking place?

Yes and No. Unfortunately, due to the global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to cancel ISEC 2020. We are aware of how disappointing this is, but we had to consider the safety implications of continuing with ISEC given the international nature of the camp. We hope you understand our decision. 

However, we are offering a free Online ISEC alternative to anyone who is interested!

When is Online ISEC taking place?

Online ISEC 2020 will take place from June 29th to July 26th. However, each participant will only be involved with their Online ISEC project for two weeks, either from June 29th – July 12th, July 6th – July 19th, or July 13th – July 26th. This is to provide greater flexibility for participants and their schedules.

Are you still accepting applications?

Yes! We are accepting applications until May 10th. After that day, you can still apply but we will add you to a wait-list in case we have any last-minute openings.

How can I confirm you received my application?

Once you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email. If you have submitted an application, but have not received a confirmation after 3 days, please contact us at

How much does ISEC cost?

Usually, the cost for ISEC is 625€. However, Online ISEC is completely free, since we do not have any expenses. We are a non-profit organization, so the participation fee just covers the operational costs of running ISEC. The majority of the participation fees goes towards room and board, camp insurance, materials, snacks and administrative costs. Since none of these are happening this year, we wanted to give this opportunity to everyone who is interested, regardless his or her economical background.

However, if you liked the experience and want to help us to keep it going and others to have a chance to attend, feel free to make a donation to our association.

Can I apply if I will be 15 years old during camp? Can I apply if I am will be 25 years old during camp?

Unfortunately due to European laws regarding minors, we will not be able to accept any applicants who will not be 16 by the start of camp.

We may consider applications from 25 year olds if there is room available. However, applicants who exceed our age limit should be aware that the projects done at ISEC may no longer be suitable for their level of education.

I am from ________. Can I apply?

Yes! We accept applications from all around the world.
