1. You are qualified for membership.
2. You qualify for membership.
Which is correct?
Re: qualify for
Generally, "to be qualified " (the participle adjective) means you have the experience, certificate, diploma, or degree required for something, usually a job: "She is qualified for the teaching position"
"To qualify (for)" usually means that sometimes simply by being old enough or a frequent customer or some other basic requirement allows you to join a club or enter a contest (athletes also have "to qualify" to get into the Olympics): "You qualify for a 10% discount because you bought two t-shirts"
Your second sentence is correct. Hope that helps!
