Membership Dues

The Kurt Gödel Society receives only a small subsidy from the Austrian Ministry of Science and hence depends on membership dues to finance its activities. Current membership fees are

€ 20 for individual members, € 7 for students

The executive board is still entitled to waive membership fees on a case-by-case basis for members from countries with currency problems, in particular Eastern Europe and South America.
