Each year, the GVFHRA College Relations Committee presents Merit Scholarship Awards at a specially designated dinner meeting. The purpose of the award is to recognize students, undergraduate and graduate, who are committed to pursuing careers in human resources and have shown strong academic ability and early engagement and accomplishments in human resources related areas.

Two scholarship winners will be awarded: a $1,000 undergraduate winner and a $1,500 graduate winner



Undergraduate Students enrolled in any of the following programs:

  • Human Resources Management

  • Organizational Management

Undergraduate Students who are NOT enrolled in the programs listed above, but who demonstrate a strong desire to become an HR professional, are enrolled in or have completed at least one HR related course are also eligible to apply. Internship experience or work experience is preferable, but not necessary.

Graduate Students currently enrolled in an MBA or MS program with a concentration in Human Resources, Organizational Management, or Industrial Relations are eligible to apply.

All students should be currently attending colleges or universities in the Greater Philadelphia/Valley Forge area and should be enrolled for Fall of the following year. For students graduating and moving onto another program/university, proof of acceptance/enrollment may be required.

Scholarship awards will be based on candidate’s completion scholarship application, field work or course work related to Human Resources, Human Resources related extracurricular activities, essay answers and faculty recommendations.



Benefits of getting involved with the GVFHRA:

 My experience volunteering with the Greater Valley Forge Human Resources Association SHRM Chapter has been amazing. I started attending events in August of my junior year after hearing about the chapter through a professor in the Human Resources Department of Cabrini University. After attending one dinner meeting, I was hooked! The GVFHRA allowed me to connect with a room of business professionals who were as eager to speak with me, as I was to speak with them. From volunteering with the chapter, I was able to secure a recruiting internship with Global Employment Solution for the summer of my Junior/Senior year. I continued to attend the monthly dinner meetings throughout the fall and spring semester of my senior year and was fortunate enough to accept an offer from Global Employment Solutions for an Executive Recruiter position in early April – over a month before graduation.  Chase Rodriguez
