How much does it cost to be a member of CLACSO?

MEMBER CENTERS pay an annual membership fee of USD 1.000 (one thousand U.S. dollars). The payment of such fee enables them to obtain direct financial support from CLACSO by means of scholarships or research subsidies, participation in Working Groups, publications, as well as scholarships or partial scholarships for any of the activities of the Virtual Training Area. Further, MEMBER CENTERS have a right to speak and to vote in General Assemblies, and are represented in the COUNCIL’s governing bodies. They also elect, among their members, the Executive Secretary of the institution.

PARTNER INSTITUTIONS AND NETWORKS do not pay a membership fee. Therefore, they can not receive any direct financial support from CLACSO, or participate with a right to vote in General Assemblies and governing bodies.
