Human Resources Scholarships

 

Scholarships for HR Managers and Other Human Resource Professionals

Whether you are aiming for a graduate degree or just getting started on your bachelor’s in human resource management, it’s always nice to find someone to help you with the costs.

Tuition costs have skyrocketed in the United States in the past few decades. The College Board’s 2017 Trends in College Pricing Report lays bare the cold, hard figures: for the average four-year public institution in 1987, tuition costs (adjusted to 2017 dollars) were just $3,190. In 2017, it was $9,970—a 213 percent increase.

Private school tuition only increased by 129 percent over the same period but it’s still a healthy chunk of cash. And although human resources is a relatively well-paying profession, you don’t want to spend the first ten or fifteen years of your career paying down college loans.

Scholarships are a great way to bridge the gap between what you have and what you need to pay for the education you deserve. There are thousands of endowments that exists expressly for the purpose of helping struggling HR and business students pay for tuition and other educational costs. This list will point you in the right direction to tap into those important resources.

What Does it Take to Qualify for an HR Degree Scholarship?

All scholarships come with caveats. Whether it’s your GPA or your gender or where you live, scholarship award committees have qualities and standards that they consider when handing out awards. You can keep from wasting your time, and theirs, by understanding the qualifications required for any scholarships you plan to apply for before you put in the paperwork.

These criteria tend to fall into three categories:

Academic

Almost all scholarships have some bar for a minimum grade point average you must have sustained, either in your college career to date or in your high school  coursework. If they do not look at GPA, then they will probably at least want your SAT scores.

Additionally, most HR-related scholarships require that you be majoring in HR management or a related field. If you change your major, you will lose the scholarship.

The school you will attend typically also has to be a fully accredited university, and sometimes a recognized research university to be eligible.

In some cases, particularly for awards restricted to graduate students, your qualifications will have to include on-the-job experience. The Susan R. Meisinger Fellowship from the Society for Human Resource Management Foundation (SHRM) offers $10,000 a year for up to $20,000 in total toward a graduate degree in HR-related programs… but only if you have a minimum of three years experience already working in HR and at least five years work experience total.

Intrinsic

Scholarships are often established for the purposes of supporting a particular class or category of students. Often, these are groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in the field. The Jane M. Klausman Women in Business Scholarship offers between $2,000 and $8,000 to full-time graduate or undergraduate students in business or HR programs… provided those students are female!

There are other groups that you can more easily become a part of that also offer scholarships. Some you may be born into… the International Publication Management Association for Human Resources has a $1,000 scholarship for students who have parents who are members of the association. On the other hand, some require that you not be related to member’s of the granting organization (to prevent any possibility of nepotism), like the Tennessee Labor Management Foundation Scholarship.

Others, you can sign up for. SHRM hands out 22 different scholarship each year for $5,000 each to current members. Many state-level SHRM chapters have their own awards with similar requirements… you can easily become a student-level member to qualify.

But you usually also have to be located in the same state or community, which is another common intrinsic qualification. Many colleges themselves offer scholarships or endowments, but they are, naturally, only available to students enrolled at the school.

Many scholarships also have a requirement that you demonstrate a financial need for the assistance. This will mean providing documentation about your income and savings levels. Depending on your age and tax status, you might also have to provide the same information for your parents.

Achievement

Examples of your independent effort or achievements in or out of the field can be important to awards committees. The Klausman scholarship noted above, for instance, requires that you have demonstrated initiative, ambition, and commitment to the field in order to be considered. In some cases, you will have to provide evidence of activities or memberships that show these qualities. In others, you’ll be asked to submit an essay or statement of intent.

Whether they are required or not, letters of recommendation can be a big deal when it comes to earning a scholarship. Every applicant things they are amazing and deserve the money. Not all of them can find respectable third parties, such as previous employers, teachers, or professors, who also think so and are willing to write a letter extolling their virtues.

Attendance requirements also fall into this category. Some scholarships may have minimum numbers of classes or credit hours you commit to taking while enrolled and covered by the scholarship. The Gettysburg Area Personnel Association offers scholarships to students in the Adams County area of Pennsylvania for HR-related degrees, but only if they are willing to carry at least a 6 credit per semester course load.

Where Can I Find Scholarship Opportunities for Degrees in HR and HR Management?

First, you should already know that there are many scholarships that you can apply for and receive that have nothing to do with HR. Many universities and other benevolent organizations encourage college attendance in general and offer scholarships that can be applied toward any degree program.

The university financial aid office should be your first stop regardless of where you plan to search for scholarships. They’ll have more ideas and more resources than you could accumulate on your own, and they’ll be able to assist you in compiling the submission materials for your applications.

Second, you should look outside the field of HR specifically. There are many, many business-oriented scholarships that are not exclusive to human resources but that include HR degrees as part of what they will fund. By going broad, you will find many more options than if you stick to HR scholarships exclusively.

There are three major sources of HR scholarships for both graduates and undergraduates.

Business and Industry

No one needs human resources more than private enterprises, and many of them have founded endowments to encourage better training and more qualified graduates in the field. Major pharmacy chain CVS/Caremark offers a $5,000 scholarship each year to graduates or undergraduates with no major strings attached.

Lucerna, a company that runs a website promoting HR Information Systems software, also has a $1,000 scholarship available to HR students. Oracle, Payscale, Wells Fargo… all offer some type of scholarship, sometimes in cooperation with non-profits (Oracle teams up with the United Negro College Fund for its award, for instance), aimed at HR or business students.

In general, business scholarships have fewer hooks and criteria than other sources of scholarship funds. On the other hand, they also tend to be relatively small and, because they are often national, may have a lot of competition when you apply.

Trade Groups and Associations

As noted above, SHRM is a major provider of scholarships for graduates and undergraduates at both the national and state chapter levels. But it’s worth checking out all types of HR and business trade associations and interest groups, no matter how small or specialized.

The National Forum for Black Public Administrators, for example, has a $2,500 award, the Walter Vaughn Excellence in Human Resources Scholarship, distributed annually to HR students who are black and preferably attending a historically black college or university.

Colleges and Universities

Some colleges and universities offer their own HR or business scholarship programs. Champlain College, in Vermont, administers the Owen H. Becker Endowment Fund for HR students attending that institution. And Central Connecticut University has a human resources scholarship to support students with a minimum of 30 credits that is awarded on the basis of an essay.

Because you are only competing against other students at the same institution, you have better odds of gaining these awards. But they are often smaller and are not handed out in great numbers than big national endowments.
