In 2005, the El Paso Society for Human Resource Management (El Paso SHRM) established a scholarship program to help defray the cost of higher education for the child of a member (known as the Sons and Daughters Scholarship), an active member of the student SHRM Chapter, and an active El Paso SHRM member attending school (Bachelor or a Graduate program).
In 2014, El Paso SHRM added two categories to the scholarship program to help HR professionals who wish to advance their HR careers by obtaining HR Certification through SHRM – CP and SHRM SCP.
In 2020, El Paso SHRM created the Military category to honor current and or veteran members of the chapter who served our country and wishes to advance their career in HR by obtaining SHRM Certification.
Scholarships are awarded based on merit and without regard to race, religion, gender, color, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
About the Program
The El Paso SHRM Professional of the Year award recognizes the outstanding achievements of HR professionals and their contributions to the advancement of human resources in our community. All active El Paso SHRM chapter members are eligible except for those who have served on the Executive Board during the past year. El Paso SHRM wants to formally recognize those members who represent the “best” in HR – those individuals who serve as role models for the profession, those who are leaders, set standards for others and the profession, and those who apply their professional expertise outside of their organizations. The winner will be recognized during our 2021 Kick-Off Meeting on January 29, 2021.
