University of Phoenix strives to give back to the community. One way we hope to fulfill this mission is to provide higher education opportunities and scholarships to individuals who may otherwise be unable to afford a college education.

Education is at the heart of everything we do. As a leader in higher education, we have a unique opportunity to assist in helping individuals reach their academic goals through an array of scholarship programs. We start by looking into our respective communities to determine the need, the desire and the void, and then work to target scholarship opportunities to fill in those gaps.

We Work to Help a Broad Range of Students

From scholarships aimed at high achievers who have the desire for a college education, but are held back by their socio-economic circumstances to the active duty military member or veteran who has served our country so honorably, University of Phoenix seeks opportunities to provide these individuals with access to a quality higher education.

Our scholarship programs also reach the underserved working adult population. These nontraditional students can face financial, social and personal obstacles that are especially challenging while going to college. Full-tuition scholarships make it feasible to further their education without incurring federal student aid debt. This access to education keeps our workforce competitive and knowledgeable.
