New & Recent Graduate Program

The Department Services Program (DSP) partners have the exclusive opportunity to gift their new and recent MA/MS or PhD graduates one-year free AAA membership.
This initiative began in 2017 as an effort to ensure that recent graduates had access to professional development resources. Since then, ~40 graduates per year have been nominated by their departments.
