Don’t let the precarity and austerity of neoliberalism keep you from joining! A group of generous donors has established a scholarship program to help faculty and graduate students pay for an AAUP membership, so they can become full-fledged members of GMU-AAUP. If you are interested in becoming a member, but are concerned about the cost, please contact us to learn about our member scholarship program.
