Washington Academy of Sciences

Affiliated Societies

In 1898, the Washington area’s eight scientific societies banded together to form the Washington Academy of Sciences, an umbrella organization designed to facilitate the cooperation among the scientific disciplines. Now, over 100 years later, with over 60 affiliated organizations, the Academy continues to effectively pursue that goal.

We welcome affiliation with any scientific society that has members in the Washington, DC area.  Please contact us for details.
