Global EDI Membership

In an attempt to provide equitable access for faculty, students, and other professionals, located outside of the so-called developed economy countries, AAAE is offering a 30% discount off the annual membership dues for professionals and institutions, located in countries with GDP per capita below $25,000.  This membership level is applicable to all membership categories (institutional, developmental, collaborative, student, individual). Please review the eligibility criteria before applying.

+ Eligibility for institutional and developmental members – to represent local educational institutions as opposed to a branch of a foreign university, whose headquarters are based in a developed economy.

+ Eligibility for individuals and students – to reside in the said country at least six months of the year.

+ Eligibility for collaborators - to represent a local art organization with interest in arts management as opposed to an international organization spin off whose headquarters are based in a developed economy.
