Cost of Attendance

To help meet the needs of Indigenous communities affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic, JIT 2021 will feature a one-time, COVID-19 Response Rate of $600 per course/credit! Courses will be live streamed via Zoom to adhere to social distancing standards, and may be available in-person (as conditions allow).

"JIT has offered a lot of insight into how other tribal communities have dealt with issues... how tribes have pursued their identity and demonstrated self-determination. The next step is trying to see if we can make those efforts in our community too."

Mikhail Sundust (Gila River), Acting Managing Editor, Gila River Indian News | JIT 2016
