I'd like to be considered for SEJ membership and intend to complete a membership application concurrently with my FEJ grant application (see separate application form on the SEJ website). Please allocate my $40 FEJ grant application fee to my first-year SEJ membership fee. I understand the fee is not reimbursable should I not be approved for membership.
