** The AAF provides an education and research discount (30%) to purchase the Rapid Starter and Rapid Identity Provider plan. See the AAF Rapid IdP Guidelines to see if your organisation qualifies for the education and research discount.

*** AAF Publisher subscription fees are based on the quarter in which the application form is signed (full fee in the first quarter; 25% reduction in second quarter; 50% reduction in third quarter; 75% reduction in fourth quarter). After the first year, annual fees for all subscribers will cover the period from 1 January to 31 December.
