Fellow: This category is for current IAIR members who have made significant and enduring contributions to research in the field of intercultural relations, most commonly through books and a body of scholarly publications in relevant journals (e.g., the International Journal of Intercultural Relations).  Typically, Fellows will have 7 or more years post Ph.D or equivalent degree, and have attained an academic rank equivalent to Full Professor with tenure at a University or College.  If they are practitioners, they should have attained an equivalent level of accomplishment in research based applied work, and have demonstrated a high degree of interest in research. Election to Fellow requires that the nominator be a Fellow of the Academy who will complete the Fellow Nomination form and forward a copy of the nominee’s vita to the Membership Committee which then makes a recommendation to the Academy Board for final action. If you are in doubt as to who are Fellows, contact the Executive Director of the Academy.

Member: This category is for researchers in intercultural relations who have attained the Ph.D or equivalent degree and are active in research in the field.  They would normally be working as an Assistant or Junior Associate Professor or Research Associate at a University or College.  If they are practitioners, they should have attained an equivalent level of accomplishment using research based applied work, and should have demonstrated a high degree of interest in research.  Members should demonstrate a commitment to the intercultural field through their education and/or work.

Ph.D. Student: This category is for Doctoral students who are either full-time students pursuing a Ph.D. degree related to intercultural relations, OR part-time students who can submit a letter from their advisor that they are making satisfactory progress toward a degree.  They must be enrolled in an institution accredited by the appropriate agency.
