Teaching It Forward scholarship program

Teachers of the Year "pay forward" their award through this special scholarship program.

Top teachers make a lasting impact with the gift of higher education

Teachers understand how education can change lives. Few know that better than the more than 50 educators who are selected annually to represent their communities as nominees for National Teacher of the Year.

In recognition of their commitment to education, University of Phoenix presents every nominee with a Teaching It Forward® scholarship. These scholarships give the nation’s top educators the opportunity to “teach forward” their award by providing deserving individuals from their communities with full-tuition scholarships toward the completion of an undergraduate or graduate degree at the University.

The National Teacher of the Year program is considered the oldest and most prestigious event to recognize excellence in teaching. Established in 1952 by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), it gives students, teachers and administrators the responsibility of nominating their favorite teacher to represent their community — and to potentially be selected as the national honoree.

University of Phoenix has participated in the Teacher of the Year program since 2009.
