Special Rates for Students, K-12 Educators, and Recent Graduates

As an educational organization, the International Relations Council wants to support the efforts of students, teachers, and recent graduates to make global connections, foster a-ha moments, and help their community see the big picture. As such, we have special membership levels for each of those three groups.

Organizational Membership

The International Relations Council could not do the work that we do without support of our organizational members, which we have split into three categories – business members, nonprofit members, and university members. When you join the IRC, you’re joining a group of remarkable organizations and individuals who know that global awareness matters. Your IRC membership is a way to publicly say, “International engagement matters to us!”
