Scholarship Sponsorship

​The SHRM Foundation empowers students and HR professionals through the awarding of scholarships for academic studies, SHRM certification, and professional development. In 2017, the SHRM Foundation will award more than 300 scholarships, including 26 sponsored scholarships. 

Your sponsored scholarship is fully managed and highly promoted by the SHRM Foundation, and sponsorships are available for just five years or for a lifetime.

Sponsoring a scholarship is a great opportunity to:
  • Honor the retirement or a professional milestone of an HR colleague
  • Pay tribute to an inspirational professor or HR professional
  • Connect your corporate brand to the HR educational field

I became a SHRM Foundation scholarship sponsor because I want the energy and dedication I hold for the HR profession to continue."
