Academic careers bring a variety of employment conditions so SULF has chosen to reduce its membership fees for doctoral students or members who are on a scholarship.

Reduced fees also apply to members who have been unemployed for a such a short time that they aren´t covered by unemployment insurance or income insurance. If you have a dual membership you can’t have reduced fees.

Limited reduced fees

  • Doctoral candidates with scholarships
  • Work abroad without paid position from Sweden (except members who have access to guest membership in Canada, Irland, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway or Finland for a period no longer than 2 years
  • Unemployed members who have not been members long enough to qualify for compensation from the unemployment insurance fund (A-kassa) or the SULF income insurance.
