2023 SHRM Foundation Scholarships, Grants, Award Flyer (View Handout)


Texas Bay Area SHRM, via The SHRM Foundation, offers professional grants to SHRM members seeking their SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification. This grant awards one SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification exam as well as SHRM's online Learning System.

How to Apply


  • Current SHRM member (professional or student membership must be active through Dec. 31, 2023)
  • Meet eligibility requirements for SHRM Certification
  • You must test in the Window #2 (Winter 2023-2024) or Window #1 (Spring 2024).

Grant Distribution

If you are selected to receive a SHRM Foundation Certification grant, you will receive access to the SHRM online Learning System and exam for the SHRM Certification for which you are eligible (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP).  The exam must be taken in Window #2 (Winter 2023-2024) or Window #1 (Spring 2024). If you do not use your Certification grant in either testing windows, you will have to reapply for a new grant, with no guarantee of receiving a new award. 


The TXBA-SHRM Undergraduate Scholarship of $2,500 will be offered once each year to a college student who is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Human Resources. Applicants must be active members of the TXBA-SHRM chapter for consideration. 


While TXBA-SHRM does not currently sponsor a Graduate scholarship, SHRM members can apply for any of the scholarship, grants, and other awards offered through the SHRM Foundation.

Our Fall 2019 winner of the Texas Bay Area SHRM Chapter Certification Scholarship: Anne Dowless!

Anne stated in her application, “I believe that by empowering others, success is found. I want to utilize my education and experience to bring about change in the way we work and help impact future generations for the better. I believe that having a strong understanding of the competencies required to help impact change will help me to reach my goals, thereby helping others to reach theirs.”

We are excited to see the continued impact you will have in the HR community backed by your certification. Congratulations, Anne!
