Founded in 1948, the Society for Human Resource Management is the world's largest membership organization devoted to human resource management. Representing more than 275,000 members in over 160 countries, the society provides resources designed to serve the needs of HR professionals and advance the professional practice of human resource management.
SHRM is accepting applications for its Susan R. Meisinger Fellowship for Graduate Study in HR, an annual program that provides funding for a first-time master's degree student in a human resources program. The award honors former SHRM President & CEO Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR.
The fellowship is designed to support a master's-degree student who is either a member of SHRM or a certified HR professional. Sponsored jointly by SHRM, the SHRM Foundation, and the HR Certification Institute, the fellowship supports an individual who want to leverage his/her significant past contributions to the HR management field and who plans to continue contributing to the profession by earning a master's degree in HR.
A single winner will be selected annually to receive a fellowship of up to $10,000. Additional fellowships may be awarded, depending on funding available, quantity and quality of applicants, and the discretion of SHRM.
Doctoral students, including DBAs and PhDs, are not eligible for this award.
See the SHRM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
