A block of rooms has been reserved at the award-winning Holiday Inn Express & Suites at 3045 Olentangy River Road for the discounted rate of $107.99 per night. Participants may make arrangements with the Institute Coordinator to have funds from their stipends used to pay directly for rooms at the Holiday Inn. This will save the 16.25% per night in taxes. If you choose this option, the total for accommodations will be deducted from the total of the stipend you receive. Also, the Institute faculty can facilitate arrangements for those who wish to share a room.
