SHRM Foundation: Scholarships, Grants, and Awards Overview

Just for HR Professionals, Students, and Faculty.
Just What You Need to Save Thousands Each Year.

Practicing HR requires specialized training and lots of support. That’s why each year the SHRM Foundation provides more than $500,000 in financial assistance to individuals preparing for their first job in HR or studying to fast-track their existing career in human resources.

Some scholarships are available exclusively with SHRM membership. Others are open to any HR Professional, student and faculty member. All are excellent ways to access the resources you need to continue your academic pursuits and become a future HR leader in the world of work.
