Fermenta is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit. In addition to the $10 or $75 donated to our scholarship fund (depending on your membership level), membership dues go towards the creation and execution of Fermenta events; this allows us to provide events for a reasonable cost or no cost to members. The scholarship fund provides scholarships to members for continuing education opportunities. To read more about our scholarship opportunities, click here.
Funds may also be used to help spread the word about Fermenta in the form of business cards, t-shirts, etc.
