School-Sponsored Student Memberships

APHA membership is the best way to prepare students for the ever-evolving world of public health and support them in lifelong learning. For schools and programs of public health, we now offer discounted APHA membership rates for students.

Being an APHA member gives students the chance to meet fellow public health students from around the nation and world via APHA’s Student Assembly, the nation’s largest student-led organization dedicated to serving public health students. Membership provides the opportunity to connect with leaders in the field and develop leadership skills of their own. And importantly, APHA membership gives students a voice in shaping the future of our field.

Here’s how it works:

Payment option 1: An eligible school or program can purchase APHA memberships for students at the low price of $57 per student, which represents a 33% discount from our typical student membership rate.

Payment option 2: An eligible school or program can purchase APHA memberships based on the average number of students reflected in the sliding scale on detailed in the FAQs. These prices are also based on the discounted rate of $57 per students.

Note: Both options include a complimentary APHA membership for one faculty member for every 100 students paid.

APHA’s overriding goal is to help create communities in which all people have the opportunity to live long, healthy lives. We know that the nation’s schools and programs of public health have that very same goal.

Have questions or want to learn more about how this can work for your school or program of public health? Please contact Director of Membership Ellen Galant via email or call 202-777-2444.

At APHA, we’re working hard every day to help public health workers adapt, evolve and prepare for the challenges of the future. We look forward to doing the same for your students — our future public health leaders — as we work to create the healthiest nation in one generation.
