Application for Sponsored ISSTD Membership is now Available!

ISSTD is happy to share that we are now accepting sponsee applications for our new member sponsorship program! Applications can be submitted through March 31, 2024. This sponsorship program will allow ISSTD members to sponsor the membership of an individual or individuals who may not otherwise have the financial resources to be able to join or renew. When members support one another, it creates a community that fosters collaboration, knowledge sharing, and collective advancement. 

Mental health students and professionals from all areas of the world are welcome to apply for a sponsored membership. Sponsorship allows you to receive all the benefits of being a member at a fraction of the price. Those who are sponsored will be eligible for a sliding scale payment on membership for the first three years following the sponsored year.

  • First Year After Sponsorship: 25% of membership fee based on career stage and location
  • Second Year After Sponsorship: 50% of membership fee based on career stage and location
  • Third Year After Sponsorship: 75% of membership fee based on career stage and location
