Graduate students are eligible for additional benefits of AWSS membership. First, the graduate student rate is $15/year instead of $40. In addition, graduate students who wish to participate in our biennial conference are eligible to receive funding for conference registration and lodging at the hotel. Finally, graduate students are encouraged to take part in our mentoring program, which pairs up graduate students with AWSS members whose research interests, fields, experiences, and goals align.
AWSS encourages faculty to sponsor a graduate student or foreign scholar membership for just $15. Faculty members do not need to be AWSS members to sponsor graduate student memberships.
For $400 you can become a lifetime member. You’ll automatically have access to all our resources, awards, prizes, conferences, and programs and never have to worry about your membership status again!
