Membership fee is $50,000 per year, renewed annually. Affiliate members may wish to provide additional funds above the annual fees to be used for SCERF Affiliate Program research conducted by a participating faculty member or for a particular area of research under the SCERF Affiliate Program. The faculty director of the program will determine how the additional funding is to be used in the SCERF Affiliate Program. All research results arising from the use of the additional funding will be shared with all of the Affiliate Program members and the general public.
