To be the most vibrant Society that we can be, it is imperative that we attract talented and creative individuals from diverse backgrounds. Diversifying membership is part of the effort to build a thriving scientific enterprise and to create a more equitable and inclusive Society. This program is designed to increase diversity in the Genetics Society of America membership by offering Presidential Membership packages to early career scientists.

Presidential Members will receive all benefits of GSA membership (including a subscription to GENETICS, discounts on publishing in GENETICS and G3, discounts on conference registration, attendance at GSA-sponsored workshops, and more). Additionally, they’ll benefit from access to networking resources within GSA and the opportunity to participate in the Early Career Leadership Program and the GSA Journals Peer Review Training Program.

Open-ended answers are restricted to 750 characters including spaces (~100 words), so we recommend composing your answers in a word processing program before entering them into Survey Monkey.

This initiative is primarily designed to bring in new members. As such, eligibility is restricted to early career scientists who are not current (2023) members of the Genetics Society of America, were not members in 2022, and have not previously held membership for more than one membership cycle. For this award, early career scientist is defined as a graduate student, postdoc, early-stage investigator (pre-tenure faculty), or early-stage staff scientist or industry researcher (≤5 years in a position). Undergraduate students may apply, although they are not eligible for the Early Career Leadership Program or the GENETICS Peer Review Training Program. International applicants are welcome to apply.
