The annual Human Resources Symposium was founded to enhance the growth and development of the HR field within Northern California. As the event grew in popularity, the opportunity arose to further support our profession by funding scholarships dedicated to students entering the field, as well as professionals continuing to pursue a higher degree as part of their career development. Over the years, we have awarded over $400,000 to deserving students pursuing HR-related degrees at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Many of these students have additionally benefited from careers at attendees' companies based on the recognition received and connections made at our annual event.

While the Lyn Boone Memorial Scholarship Program has been - and will continue to be - funded out of the proceeds from the annual HR Symposium, it has become such a vibrant and recognized program, often we receive unsolicited donations from our generous community, allowing us to grow the number of scholarships awarded.
