Join us in mobilizing new generations of scholars working across borders .
We are funded much like public radio. Membership is about supporting our work, not access to it. We rely on the generous support of individual and institutional members to help us support the upward academic mobility of over 15,000 scholars and students working across borders worldwide. Our work is supported by the generosity of members who have seen first-hand the life-changing impact of our work on scholars and students worldwide.
We have expenses to cover, but we believe money should never be the reason why someone cannot join.

If you would like to join but truly cannot afford it, enter the coupon code FREE for a free 1-year membership. We grant all requests. No questions asked.
STAR Scholars Network is a member-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization registered in the State of Maryland (US).
Why your membership makes a difference !
Your membership also supports full membership benefits for scholars and graduate students in less wealthy countries or universities who request free membership, so money is never a reason why someone cannot participate in our society.

What does my membership support?
We immediately invest all membership contributions to support the work of our society. Member contributions equally support three major areas: scholarships and fellowship programs (33.3%), open access research and publication (33.3%), cross-border and regional events (33.3%). We have no administrative salaries since members of our leadership team are all employed at colleges and universities, and volunteer their time and contribute their vision, energy, and resources in leading our society.
