EASE Sponsored Membership Scheme

EASE has operated a Sponsored Members Scheme for some years. This is designed to offer people with limited financial resources the opportunity to join EASE by having their subscription paid by an existing EASE member. This gives those who might otherwise not be able to justify the cost of membership a chance to experience at first hand the benefits the Association offers.

It is anticipated that having experienced the benefits, sponsored members will be better placed to justify their investment in Association membership and be able to pay their own subscription in subsequent years. This enables the Scheme to be used to help more new people become familiar with EASE each year.

The Scheme is only possible through the generosity of EASE members who are willing to support the Association in this way and encourage those in less well-off countries with their professional development.

Sponsorship is available to members from a Low-Income, Lower-Middle, or Upper-Middle Country (as defined by the World Bank).

If you wish to apply for sponsorship, please complete and send us a Sponsorship Application Form 2024.

If you are willing to become a sponsor, please contact the EASE Secretary.

How can you contribute to EASE?

As a sponsored member we encourage you to make the most of your membership by attending events and training. You can also contribute to the work of EASE in a number of ways, for example:

  • Promote EASE in your institution, organisation and wider networks
  • Write a news item or meeting report for our news page and social media channels
  • Write a book review or an article on an editing related topic, such as the status of science editing in your country
  • Translate some guidelines or Wikipedia entries into your own language.

If you have any other suggestions, please contact the EASE Secretary.
