New in 2016, the Wisconsin SHRM State Council has sponsored a certification scholarship to be awarded by the SHRM Foundation. This scholarship, with a $750 award, is open to SHRM national members who live or work in Wisconsin, and who are preparing to sit for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP certification exam. In addition to this Wisconsin only certification scholarship, members are also eligible for one of the other more than 225 scholarships available this year. Because of the generosity of donors and sponsors, the SHRM Foundation’s annual scholarship program supports hundreds of HR professionals and students who are pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees, SHRM certification, and professional development.
Ready to become SHRM certified? Deadline for scholarship applications is July 15 and awards will be given in mid-October. Learn more at:shrmfoundation.org/scholarships. Select SHRM Foundation Scholarship for HR Professional, then select Certification Scholarships.
