Cost of Online 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 $500 per course/credit (regular cost is $750). Courses will be live streamed via Zoom and all course materials will be available on UArizona's online course platform.

"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
