Hardship Reduced Rate Application

I.        The AME membership rate is reduced to $20 US (normally, $95 US for regular memberships and $65 US for students), which will reduce conference registration by $75 US for regular members and $45 US for students.  To be eligible, individuals must qualify for one of the following categories:

a)      Students registered for full-time work toward graduate degrees in universities or colleges and for whom paying the membership fee would be a hardship.

b)      Unemployed individuals (if unemployment was not by choice and paying the membership rate presents a hardship to the individual).

c)       Untenured faculty in countries defined as “developing countries” according to IMF criteria and for whom the membership fee would be a hardship.


2.    Applicants must submit an application on the conference registration website, and their application must be accepted. 


3.    This reduced rate is developed in association with JME and includes a one-year subscription to the journal.


4.    Student and young faculty applicants may apply for both a hardship reduced rate and a travel grant.


5.    For any individual, the period of reduced subscription would be for a maximum of three years.


To apply, please submit answers to each of the following questions ONE email to AME2012@unt.edu by June 15, 2012 and  include “Hardship application” in your subject line.  The Committee will request further information if necessary with a view to deciding on applications by the end of June, 2012.
