The Delaware Chapter of SHRM is the premier human resources association for The First State. Since 1974, we have provided members with professional development, relevant HR information, legislative updates, and networking opportunities that stimulate professional growth and enhance workplace contributions. One of our main objectives is to provide a wide range of educational sessions, programs and other activities that allow members to develop and enhance their expertise in the various functional areas that constitute human resource management.  Because our emphasis is on education, this year we have chosen to provide up to three $2,500 scholarships to students majoring in Human Resources or a related program.
Who is eligible?
·         Undergraduate students currently enrolled in a Human Resources degree program or a related program with a 3.0 GPA or above

The Delaware SHRM Scholarship committee will review all packages and provide feedback in late October.  We will consider your passion for the HR field, commitment to a career in human resources, and scholastic average and standing.  We also will consider the total achievements and need of each applicant. We recognize that strength in one area could outweigh deficiency in another.
