To encourage broad participation in the Association, the Midwest Political Science Association is offering a limited number of complimentary two-year electronic memberships to political science scholars in 139 developing countries (as defined by the World Bank for the 2015 fiscal year - See https://www.mpsanet.org/Membership/Awards-and-Scholarships/Developing-Nations-Scholarships for a complete list). This program will allow access to MPSA membership benefits including electronic access to the American Journal of Political Science, the association’s monthly electronic newsletter, eligibility for MPSA conference scholarships and other member benefits for a period of twenty-four months. 

Scholars from the developed world who are temporarily located in one of the developing countries (e.g. Fulbright Scholars) are not eligible, nor are scholars originally from the developing world who currently are faculty or graduate students in the developed world.
