            When an organization becomes an OWASP supporter, there is
            usually an annual fee of $5,000. But if the organization is
            a university then the fee is waved. There are currently more
            than 50 such academic supporters worldwide. They play an
            important role in spreading the OWASP message. Recently, a
            question has been raised. Should we extend the no-cost
            benefit to government agencies? The Membership Committee
            thinks the answer is yes. We proposed the requirements and
            benefits below for your review.</span><br>
