Karl B. Zimmerman Scholarship
We are now accepting scholarship applications from Central Texas undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a degree in human resources or related business degree.
Karl Zimmerman played an active role in helping advance the Human Resources profession in Austin, Texas. He graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas in 1971. In 1977, he moved to Austin, and was elected President of Austin Personnel Association, which later became Austin Human Resource Management Association (AHRMA). During his tenure as President, he advocated for the funding of scholarships for students seeking careers in human resources.
The Executive Committee voted to fund two scholarships for students studying human resources in 1992. In 1994, the same committee voted to name the scholarships the “Karl B. Zimmerman Memorial Scholarship” in memory of Karl, and as a tribute to his dedication to the field of human resources, and his efforts to develop future human resources leaders. In 2017, the AHRMA Board of Directors elected to award one $2,000 scholarship to an undergraduate or graduate student.
Over the years, thousands of scholarship dollars have been awarded to students who have demonstrated academic excellence, and an interest in selecting a career in the human resource arena.
Details around the 2020 scholarship process will be available soon.
