To be a member of AFSUW, you must become a member of AFS national. Students pay a reduced fee to become members of AFS, and are then eligible for AFS scholarships, have access to AFS publications, and can attend AFS conferences for a reduced price. Once a member of AFS national, there is no additional fee to be a member of AFSUW, simply attend our meetings and events.

While AFSUW membership is reserved for students at the University of Washington, we welcome all students and AFS members to join our mailing list and attend AFSUW events. For information on starting a student chapter at your university, contact the Washington-British Columbia Chapter here.
