*Transcripts must be in English. The SHRM Foundation may request an applicant with an international transcript to provide a transcript evaluation (at the applicant's expense), from World Education Services or another reputable service, prior to reviewing an application.
Fellowship recipients will be required to provide evidence of acceptance or enrollment in an HR-related program of study and a current college transcript upon receipt of an official award letter.

To accept the fellowship, recipients must commit to working in the HR field for a minimum of one year for every year of funding received. They must maintain their HR certification and/or SHRM membership during the fellowship. They must maintain a 3.5 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) and university enrollment in their original master's degree program to be eligible for a second year of funding.
By accepting a fellowship, you are consenting to allow the SHRM Foundation (and the award's sponsor, if any) to use without limitation, and in any media, your name, city, state, photos and captions (if uploaded), and verbiage for marketing and promotional purposes.
