How to Apply
application coming soon
If you are selected to receive a graduate scholarship, you will be required to provide your course registration and college/university payment instructions. The SHRM Foundation will issue the funds directly to the institution for payment of tuition and course-related fees, up to $5,000. Your scholarship may be used for any academic session within 2020 or 2021 and must be claimed in time to distribute the funds to your institution no later than December 31, 2021.
Scholarships are considered taxable income by the IRS. Therefore, recipients will be required to provide a Social Security Number or tax ID, and SHRM will issue a 1099 for the tax year in which the scholarship was distributed.
