ISCAST has four categories of membership as follows:
If you are interested in joining ISCAST as a member in one of the first three categories, you can apply using the online application form or download a membership brochure and return it to the ISCAST office. To find out more about being a Fellow and application details, please see here.
New members will be put in contact with the ISCAST chapters closest to them and will be encouraged to become actively involved there.
Associates are supporters of ISCAST but who do not have the qualifications, time or interest required to become Fellows. They support ISCAST’s Vision, Mission and Core Values. Many ISCAST associates are among our most active members and are key supporters of ISCAST’s program through financial and other means.

Many members of ISCAST remember with gratitude the access we had to wise scientists who influenced us through their Christian faith and helped us understand the issues involved and set us on our various paths of research, professional careers and learning. ISCAST is keen to provide this same access for today’s science and theological students.
Student membership of ISCAST is $25 per year, and this provides the full suite of benefits of membership as well as access to some of Australia’s top scientists in their fields.
ISCAST is currently investigating the possibility of developing a student program focussed on senior secondary and undergraduate university students, particularly those studying science and/or theology.
