Help support future SHRM-Atlanta Scholarship Awards!

Looking ahead to 2020, the Scholarship committee plans to increase the number and diversity/types of scholarships. In order to do so, we need your support!  With your financial donation, the Scholarship Fund will continue providing financial assistance to deserving SHRM-Atlanta members. Your generosity and gift will enable members at the Professional Practitioner/Consultant level and the Student/Rising Leader level to acquire new skills, enhance current knowledge/skills and further advance and succeed in their careers.  

As we kick off our 2020 Scholarship Campaign, please consider a minimum donation of $20… or more!





Scholarship Award Process

Preference is given to members with more than one year of active membership and to those that have attended SHRM-Atlanta education events in the past.

Applications are reviewed and scored by a team of SHRM-Atlanta volunteers and staff.  All decisions are final. Each award is a one-time award; however, previous applicants and past recipients are eligible to re-apply. Previous award is no guarantee of a future award.

If you are selected to receive a SHRM-Atlanta event scholarship, you will be provided with a special code that allows you to register for the event at the scholarship rate.  If you are awarded a scholarship that includes the SHRM Certification exam fee for the SHRM-CP/SHRM-SCP exam, you will need to provide SHRM-Atlanta with proof of purchase and a copy of your completion certificate within 12 months of your award date to receive reimbursement. SHRM-Atlanta will process your reimbursement request within 4-6 weeks after receipt; reimbursement will be provided by check. Your acceptance letter will include instructions for submitting your documents. 

Scholarships are considered taxable income by the IRS. Applicants selected for an award will be required to provide a Social Security number or other tax ID; SHRM-Atlanta will issue a 1099 for the tax year in which the scholarship was awarded.
