NAHR SHRM Scholarship Sponsorship

    The NAHR Foundation has partnered with the SHRM Foundation to establish the NAHR Graduate Student Scholarship for five years in the amount of $5,000 each year.  The NAHR Foundation will fund the Scholarship and the SHRM Foundation will select the Scholarship recipients.  Graduate student scholarship beneficiaries must be enrolled in a master’s degree program clearly pursuing an emphasis on HR or HR related programs.  Judging criteria for the scholarship is based on a combined percentage of SHRM student chapter involvement   and/or commitment to the HR profession (35%), academic achievement (30%), additional leadership and service activities or work experience (25%), and financial need (10%).
