Student Scholarship Application

We at JIRP recognize that the costs of tuition, equipment, travel, and lost work time can feel overwhelming. We make every effort to ease this burden through financial aid, gear rentals, and guidance finding discount equipment. Please use this form to apply for need-based financial aid from our scholarship fund. We also strongly encourage applicants to seek additional funding and support.

Please note that tuition covers room, board, and all transportation costs for the dates of the program (June 20 - August 17, 2018).
