U.S. Academic Department Membership Dues


The membership year for academic members runs July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010.

For a membership dues schedule, please e-mail members@cra.org.

Start at the top of the dues calculation table, find the first line where the research funding total and the number of researchers is true for your department. In cases where an institution's computing research is spread across more than one department, CRA expects separate memberships for each department.

If a School or College wishes to join and is paying for multiple departments: calculate the dues rate for each department -- without double-counting shared researchers or funding -- and combine the results.

"Research Funding": This is the total external amount spent on research and includes direct costs and overhead. Internal university funds and education-oriented funds are excluded. Expenditures and indirect costs from government and industrial research grants are included. Calculate your research expenditure by using whatever method is accepted by your department. Use the most recent 12-month period for which data are readily available.
