Reasons for IHSS Membership

  • Offsets the cost of running the website and forum.
  • Funds the Scholarship Program. Without paid memberships, we would not be able to offer scholarships.  Since we started the program we have awarded over $50,000 to graduating seniors across the state.  Due to Covid-19, we have had to suspend the scholarship program.  We hope to start the program back up in the future.
  • It helps prevent spamming and trolls on the forum (Not 100% effective, but helps).

Cost of IHSS Membership

  • $18.00 Annually
  • We offer single yearly memberships. Academic membership is available for users who want to contribute more than $18.00 per year.  This additional money goes towards the scholarship program.
