Through the department-sponsored membership program, departments can subsidize a year of APSA membership for their Masters and Ph.D. students. The cost for providing complimentary membership to these students is shared equally by APSA and the sponsoring department. A department may sponsor as many students as they wish to fund.
Extending a complimentary year of membership to graduate students can help orient them in their chosen profession while familiarizing them with APSA's various offerings at no risk to them. It is also intended to contribute to the larger APSA goal of enhancing programs and services for graduate students. Student members have access to the same range of services as professional members but special items include:
Due to the continuing and widespread support of APSA members, student membership has always been subsidized by the professional members of the association. Departments can help us continue this tradition and increase the number of graduate student able to enjoy the benefits of APSA membership.
