Andrew Marcotte

"Winning this scholarship proves that hard work and determination pay off. It also proves that early career HR professionals have the resources and support to begin their certifications. The SHRM Foundation has a great support structure in place that enabled me to apply for this scholarship. That same funding arrangement is there for many others to take advantage of this opportunity as well."

Burgandy Mallinger

"As an HR professional at Northwood, I feel that I make a difference for employees when giving them advice on how to advance in their career and skills. Working and this SHRM Foundation scholarship helps me pay for college and achieve my dreams of going to graduate school and pursuing a career in Human Resources. I am thankful for this scholarship as it has empowered me to move forward with my dream."

Gwyn Dubel

"This scholarship is very important to myself and others like me, because it provides me the opportunity to continue my education with more ease, helping me to build a successful career in Human Resources. I am very thankful for my education and am determined to succeed. Some of my motivation to succeed comes from my goal of attaining and maintaining financial stability and security, something I did not have growing up."

Corinne Smith

"Thanks to this scholarship from the SHRM Foundation, I only had to work part-time for my final semester at UTSA, giving me significantly more time to focus on school rather than finances. This scholarship has been like a graduation present to me from the SHRM Foundation paying over half of the tuition for my last semester in school."
