Comments from past winners:
"I wanted to take a moment to extend my sincere gratitude for selecting me as this Spring's scholarship recipient. I am both excited and humbled by your generosity and your faith in me. I can't wait to get started at Catholic University and look forward to sitting for the SPHR exam in May. With this scholarship you have opened a number of doors for me and I am confident that this will result in many positive things to come. I do hope to be able to report exciting news back to you in May, however, regardless of the outcome of my exam, I know that the knowledge and the experience I will gain from the CUA SHRM prep class will prove invaluable in my career and personal growth. For that, I am eternally grateful."
"Thank you for the generous scholarship in partnership with CUA. I appreciate the opportunity for this learning experience. I have gained knowledge to help on the SHRM Certification test and to grow in my HR career."
