AERA Doctoral Student Cohort Program

Doctoral students are a vital part of AERA, representing 25% of the total membership of more than 25,000. Institutions that participate in the AERA Doctoral Student Cohort Program collaborate with AERA to allow AERA members who are full time students in the doctoral program, who are not employed full time, to join with reduced dues of $25 instead of the regular student dues of $55, giving students the opportunity to experience AERA membership.

Benefits for AERA Doctoral Student Cohort Program members:

  • Receive reduced member dues of $25 (compared to $55).
  • Select free membership in an AERA Division and additional Division memberships for just $5 each.
  • Join Special Interest Groups (SIGs); the $7 SIG administrative fee is waived for cohorts.

  • Receive timely notice of announcements of grants and calls for proposals.
  • Take advantage of valuable networking opportunities through Divisions, SIGs, and, in particular, the AERA Graduate Student Council (GSC). Receive the AERA graduate student newsletter, Connections, published three times a year and join the GSC's listserv.

How does the AERA Doctoral Student Cohort Program work?
The program is a partnership between graduate schools of education and AERA. AERA reduces the membership fee by $15, the school donates $15, and AERA doctoral student cohort member pays only $25 to join. The 2018 AERA Doctoral Student Cohort Program is available to institutions now through March 31, 2018.

What is required of the institution?
AERA asks that a program coordinator be appointed who will be responsible for reaching out to professors and students about the AERA Doctoral Student Cohort Program. In order to ensure a vibrant doctoral student network, AERA asks that the coordinator actively promote the program and recruiting all of the first year doctoral students cohort to join. AERA has also opened the program to doctoral students who have not yet been AERA members and are not employed full time.

To make this as easy as possible, AERA provides an announcement that the program coordinator can distribute by email to students and post in the department. AERA will provide to the program coordinator the website and passcode for students to join and pay their portion of the dues ($25) with a credit card. Coordinators will not need to handle any paper applications.
