Join ESN

Becoming a member of the Emerging Scholars Network is simple: All you have to do is agree with the ESN Mission Statement:

The Emerging Scholars Network is called to identify, encourage, and equip the next generation of Christian scholars who will be a redeeming influence within higher education.

By completing this form and submitting it to us, you indicate that you affirm the ESN Mission — and that's all you need to do to become an ESN member. We encourage all ESN members to benefit younger scholars by serving as mentors. If you desire to share your experience in higher education by serving as a mentor (in person or online, e.g., writing for Scholar's Compass), please contact ESN via this form.

A few notes . . .

  • Control-click to select more than one Academic Field or Career Stage.
  • If you have been referred to ESN by another ESN member, please include their name in the Comments sections below.
  • International Membership: We're especially pleased to note that the Emerging Scholars Network is not limited to the United States. In collaboration with the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES), we welcome members from around the world, especially those connected with our sibling IFES movements. We urge non-US residents to contact the IFES movement in their nation for resources, ministry, and fellowship opportunities close to home. Also, we regret to say that not all membership benefits can apply equally to non-US residents (because of shipping costs or legal restrictions); please see the ESN Membership Benefits for details.
  • Address or career-stage updates: If your contact information (or any other info for that matter, including career stage, etc.) changes, please simply resubmit this form and note in the comments field that you're making an update.
