How to Apply
Named Scholarships to be Awarded
Several of our scholarships are made possible through the generous support of the following organizations and individuals. You do not need to apply for a specific, named scholarship - the SHRM Foundation will determine if your application qualifies for any of these awards:
If you were selected to receive a SHRM Foundation Certification Scholarship in 2018, you must register/apply for a certification preparation course and/or SHRM Certification exam (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP), and then submit your receipts within 12 months of your award date to the SHRM Foundation for reimbursement. Your acceptance letter will include instructions for submitting your receipts; the SHRM Foundation will process your reimbursement within 4-6 weeks after receiving your receipts. There are two options for your reimbursement - either by check or ACH/Wire Transfer. We strongly encourage you to use the ACH/Wire transfer, so that you may receive your funds faster.
Beginning June 2019, if you are selected to receive a SHRM Foundation Certification Scholarship you will receive two codes: one will allow you to purchase the SHRM Learning System and the other will allow you to apply for the SHRM Certification for which you are eligible (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP). The codes will expire 12 months from the date they are issued. If you do not use the codes by your deadline, you will have to reapply for a new scholarship, with no guarantee of receiving a new scholarship.
