Many people do not apply for scholarships because they think they will not get them.  I want to encourage you to apply.  If you do not apply, you definitely will not get one.  I will continue to put scholarship opportunities on the website for you  to review.  You will need to sign into SHRM using your account information. 

The HR Southwest Conference (HRSWC) is October 1 -4, 2017.  It is an exciting educational and networking event.  It is open for registration and there are student sponsorships available. Please take this opportunity to look at attending.  You might also contact your local professional SHRM chapter to see if they are sponsoring students for HRSWC.

Please take a few minutes to provide your responses to the following questions. Thank you in advance for helping us to learn how we can best help you!
