AERE Student Membership

Thank you for your interest in the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists!  Our goal is to promote more and better communication among economists who are interested in environmental and natural resource economics issues. We hope that you will join our efforts to achieve this result.

AERE membership terms follow the calendar year (January to December).  Memberships purchased between January 1 and October 1 are for the current calendar year.  Memberships purchased on or after October 1 are applied to the next calendar year.

AERE student memberships start at $25 and offer the same benefits as AERE Individual Memberships but at a substantially reduced rate.

Proof of student status is required for student membership. That proof can consist of a letter from your university, an unofficial transcript, or an electronic link to your university showing your current student status. Please email your proof to [email protected]
