ASPB Membership Dues Discount for Scientists in Developing Nations

Over the years many from plant scientists from developing nations have told us that, much as they wish to join ASPB, there simply isn’t sufficient funding for them to do so. In an effort to redress this situation, a least a bit, beginning right now ASPB will start offering a member dues discount to scientists in certain developing countries. We will be using the World Bank Classification to determine the countries in which resident plant scientists will be eligible for these discounts.

In countries classified by the World Bank as a Low Income Economies, residents will get a 50% discount on advertised ASPB membership dues.  In countries classified as Lower Middle Income Economies, residents will get a 33% discount on membership dues. We are hoping these membership discounts will allow residents of those countries to join ASPB.

If you are eligible, here is how you can access the discount:

  • If you are a new member
    • Residents of  Low Income Economies use promotion code DND50 when you submit payment for your membership.
    • Residents of  Lower Middle Income Economies use promotion code DND33 when you submit payment for your membership.
  • I you are renewing your membership
    • Please contact Shoshana Kronfeld at shoshana@aspb.org before paying the membership renewal so that she can apply the discount directly to your invoice.

If you have any questions, please contact shoshana@aspb.org.
