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.

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.
