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 are selected to receive a SHRM Foundation Certification Scholarship you will receive a SHRM Learning System and exam for the SHRM Certification for which you are eligible (SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP), to be claimed 12 months from the date they are issued. If you do not claim your scholarship by the deadline, you will have to reapply for a new scholarship, with no guarantee of receiving a new scholarship. Please note, the SHRM Foundation cannot reimburse certification exam fees.
