Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)

If you can get tuition reimbursement for classes at least, Villanova offers a 3 course Masters certificate in HR Management that provides great information and preparation for the PHR. Then you just have to pay for the test itself and you may be able to get tax credit for that expense at least. I’m not aware of any scholarships, but at least those classes might be reimbursable for tuition and allow you to just have to pay for the test itself! Good luck!

Asides from your employer paying for it, there’s not really a lot of options. If the moneys too tight, then I personally would hold off until it isn’t. Another potential option is to switch jobs and aim for a higher salary or a company that is willing to pay for it.

Check out your local HR associations. They may offer scholarships.

I am new to consulting and I have never felt more insecure. I am the subject matter expert for my team and a liaison with the client but most of the technical stuff is going over my head. I think part of the issue is that I feel like I am going to have to defend every choice I make. I am not used to that and I just don't get some concepts. Also, there are not many women and I have worked in mainly female work environments until now.
