Application for membership

Are you interested in our work and would like to join DeGEval?


Here you can find our statutes. From 01.01.2024, the membership fee for personal members will be 123,13€, for student members 61,57€ and for institutional members 556,76€. A trial membership costs 30€ for one year (student and personal membership) or 150€ (institutional membership), depending on the type of membership.

Student membership is limited to a maximum of three years. Please submit a certificate of student status to the office every year (by e-mail or post). If your student status expires before the end of the three years, your student membership will become a personal membership. When applying for student membership, the Executive Board reserves the right to recommend a personal membership instead of a student membership after appropriate examination.

You can only apply for a trial membership once. Trial members have no voting rights at the DeGEval General Assembly. Trial membership automatically turns into a regular membership after one year.

Below you can find our membership application form in PDF format.
You can either fill out the form directly on your PC or print it out and fill it in by hand.

Please send the completed and signed membership application form by e-mail or post to our office.


If you would like to provide us with your updated bank details for the collection of membership fees, please send us a completed SEPA direct debit mandate by post or e-mail.
