Scholarships & SHRM Foundation

SHRM Foundation

 


The SHRM Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The Foundation is a legally separate organization, and is not funded by SHRM membership dues. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors from the HR profession, including academics, practitioners and representatives from SHRM.

The SHRM Foundation's work includes:

  • Strategic thought leadership initiative. The SHRM Foundation is conducting a multi-phase program to identify and analyze critical trends likely to impact the workplace in 5-10 years.
  • Innovative academic research grants. The SHRM Foundation is a leading funder of HR research. Over the past three years, the SHRM Foundation has awarded more than $1.8 million in grants to fund rigorous, original academic research with practical implications for HR management practice.
  • Scholarships. The SHRM Foundation awards more than $295,000 annually in education, certification and professional development scholarships to professional and student SHRM members, and doctoral students.
  • Educational resources. The SHRM Foundation's Effective Practice Guidelines series makes research findings easily accessible to HR practitioners. The Foundation has also created a series of educational DVDs for SHRM chapter programming, staff trainings, and executive education sessions.

To fund its programs, the SHRM Foundation conducts an annual fundraising campaign. The Foundation recognizes the generous support of the SHRM chapters and state councils, individuals, corporations and others who make its work possible. As a chapter we support the SHRM Foundation in many ways through our monthly 50/50 raffles, yearly silent auction, member donations and various other fundraising events.
