Alliance Overview

Student Members are provided with discounted dues of $65.00/year. If you are a student in a multi-year program and would like to maintain your $65 per year membership, you must attend two (2) events and volunteer for two (2) events each Alliance membership year. If you are a student who is attending a program of less than a year, you will be eligible for an initial student membership rate of $65. Thereafter, you will renew (earning 4 credits a year) and pay as a full member.
