Summer Scholars are expected to pay for all meals while in attendance at the workshop.
Summer Scholars may purchase breakfast and lunch at on-campus dining facilities, but scholars should not expect a diverse array of menu options as the college will be operating limited facilities during the summer.
During our travels at various points throughout the week, scholars will dine as a group at restaurants along the Canal corridor. Menus will range in price (from $15 per entree in downtown Buffalo to $30 per entree at the Richardson Canal House in Pittsford). Sunday evening and Thursday evening’s dinner will be provided by a catering service and scholars will be charged an upfront rate for these meals. Vegetarian meal options will be made available for any catered meal.
