    Did you know?  In 2018, the SHRM Foundation will award close to $500,000 in support to students seeking undergraduate, graduate, certification and professional development opportunities.   Full scholarship application information is available on the Foundation website, under the Scholarship Page.   

    Right now, if you qualify, you can apply for a scholarship to attend the SHRM annual conference taking place in June 2018 in Chicago, IL (deadline March 15, 2018) and/or a scholarship to support you if you are seeking to earn your SHRM-CP or SHRM SCP (deadline April 10, 2018).  Many of our HR professionals in New Mexico have been received scholarships from the SHRM Foundation.  

    The great work done by the SHRM Foundation would not be possible without the generous support of our entire HR community.  Please consider a donation to help further the work of this important affiliate of SHRM.
