EDRA Student Resources
EDRA has a large and active community of undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students from around the world. Together, they make up 30% of the EDRA membership. We have opportunities for students to join EDRA conferences or participate in any of our activities. If you have not yet signed up for a student membership, visit this link to become a student member.
Below are some opportunities to EDRA student members:
The Graduate Student Mentoring Workshop is an initiative of the Environmental Design Research Association designed to provide a forum for graduate students to present and discuss their ongoing research with senior mentors in environment-behavior design research. Held during EDRA's annual conference, the purpose of the workshop is to strengthen and further thesis/dissertation work, as well to support the development of networks for young researchers in this area, both with senior researchers and with other graduate students.
A limited number of conference scholarships in the form of reduced or complimentary conference registration and/or travel reimbursement are available for current EDRA student members who have been accepted to present at this year’s EDRA conference.
Student Volunteer Opportunities
Student volunteers at the conference receive, in exchange for about 10 hours of work, access to all conferences sessions and significant additional discount off of conference registration. In addition, student volunteers have access to network with the most senior academics and practitioners in their profession. It is a window into seeing who is at EDRA and how the organization works.
