AERA Hardship Policy 

The Hardship Provision is available to any AERA member whose financial condition has changed drastically and sufficiently so that a member would have difficulty renewing their membership. A member must be in good standing for at least three previous years to qualify for the hardship provision. Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of AERA membership dues and one year of dues for membership in a division and one special interest group of which the applicant was a member the previous year. The Hardship Provision may be granted for a maximum of one year for each member.

To apply for consideration, send a letter via email explaining the nature of the hardship, along with member number, choice of division, and choice of special interest group, to the attention of Felice Levine, AERA Executive Director, at executive.director@aera.net prior to the membership expiration date.
