Member Dues Assistance

ACT encourages a diverse membership from the global community. It is recognized that toxicologists are active in areas of the world where even reduced dues payments may present a challenge. The College will consider, on a limited and case-by-case basis, requests for financial assistance with membership fees. One example might be applicants from developing countries (such as those on the UN list of least developed countries) seeking financial assistance.

If you wish to be considered for ACT membership dues assistance, please provide your request with as much detail as you feel is appropriate by completing this form and emailing it to ACT Headquarters.

Consideration for each request will depend on time of submission. Requests will be reviewed in conjunction with each new membership application cycle.

If you are a prospective member of the College, please submit your application for membership and your dues assistance request at the same time. The online application link can be found on this page.
