Scholarships are available for the 2022 C.S. Lewis Oxbridge Summer Institute – both tuition grants and work study scholarships. Please read our scholarship page for information and how to apply. Please note: we are no longer accepting applications for scholarships.
Please note: due to the conference selling out, we have closed the half-conference option.
We accept payment online, by telephone, and by mail, through the following methods:
- Check or money order (Make payable to “C.S. Lewis Foundation” and include a note designating the check as payment for Oxbridge 2022.) To do so, register online and choose “check” as your payment option. Send the payment to our mailing address at C.S. Lewis Foundation, P.O. Box 8008, Redlands, CA 92375. We do not receive mail at our physical address in Redlands. Please note that paying by check helps save us a significant amount that is lost to credit card fees – we are a nonprofit organization that relies on individual donors for support and every little bit saved from credit card fees helps in our mission! 🙂
- Credit Card – We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Credit cards are charged through PayPal as the processing company, but do not require a PayPal account or sign up.
- PayPal – You may use a PayPal account to pay through our online registration system.
Due to credit card fees and the extra costs we incur to track, collect, and process partial payments for the conference, we very much prefer to receive payment in full.
If you do wish to make payments for your tuition, please note that any discounted rate above requires payment in full (i.e. one can’t register for the early bird discount and then pay their remainder during the regular registration period). We also ask that partial payments be made by check to “C.S. Lewis Foundation, Attn: Summer Institute, P.O. Box 8008, Redlands, CA 92375”. Please put “Oxbridge” on the memo line of your check.
* Note: group discounts cannot be combined with other discounts. To receive discount, group must register together using the bundle discount on our 2022 Summer Institute online registration page or call us to arrange registration & payment.
Registrants can only receive one discount. Discounts listed above may not be combined. For example, a person can only receive the Super Early Discount or the Student Discount, but not both.
Super Early and Early Bird Discounts require payment in full during the discount time period. If you register during the period, but don’t make payment until after the discount expires, you will not receive the discount.
When registering, you may choose whichever option is applicable and serves you best.
Scholarships and discounts: If you are awarded a tuition or work study scholarship, you will not also receive a discount. You’ll need to register for the full registration rate (not early bird nor super early bird) and choose check in the mail as your payment option. We’ll then award your scholarship, log it in the registration system, and have you make payment on the remaining amount separately at a future date.
Of the Tuition $395 is non-refundable. Due to contractual agreements with our venues, all payments for the remainder of Tuition are fully refundable up to April 10, 2022, 50% refundable from April 11, 2022 to May 31, 2022; and nonrefundable beginning June 1, 2022. Note: if you do need to cancel for any reason, you can transfer a registration to another person (who is not already registered for the event), with no penalty, by notifying us up to the week prior to the event.
St. Catherine’s College has its individual refund policy. Refer to their website for details when you register.
As all C.S. Lewis Foundation costs for the event are ultimately due and payable in British pounds sterling to vendors in the U.K., the cost in U.S. currency may be subject to increase due to potential fluctuations in currency exchange rates. Should the cost of the pound rise above $1.70 by July 1, 2022, a pro-rata currency exchange surcharge may be applied.
It is strongly advised that C.S. Lewis Summer Institute participants purchase travel insurance to protect themselves from unforeseen events that may impact their travel plans.
