International new professional membership (low income/lower middle income countries)

This special rate of $25 is for residents of low income and lower middle income countries as defined by the World Bank. All other non-U.S. applicants should use the International new professional membership application.

Professional memberships are for working journalists, authors, editors, producers, public information officers, science-writing educators, and people who write and produce films, museum exhibits, and other material intended to inform the public about science and technology.

If your primary mailing address is in the United States, please use the U.S. application form instead.
