AIGA is committed to increasing student involvement in the design community. To make membership even more accessible to students, for six weeks only, full-time students can join or renew online for just $50.
This national student membership drive will occur from mid-September thru October 30, so spread the word! No paper forms to complete or money to collect. Students simply go to my.aiga.org to sign up and save!
AIGA student members gain access to invaluable resources and opportunities to help make the transition from student to professional designer, including:
• Exposure by posting their portfolio in the AIGA Member Gallery
• Job and internship opportunities in AIGA Design Jobs
• Occasions to network and learn at local and national events
• Access to exclusive member discounts
• And a chance to build leadership skills and collaborate with classmates in your school’s AIGA student group
