Paying it Forward® Scholarship Program

Paying it Forward® Scholarship

University of Phoenix is proud to announce the Paying It Forward® Scholarship program. University of Phoenix understands the importance of making higher education accessible for students of all ages and backgrounds. As the largest private university in North America, we take our social responsibility to our students and the communities we serve very seriously. We also believe in the importance of “paying it forward” to those who might not have an opportunity to achieve their educational goals. 

With the assistance of the University of Phoenix Alumni Association, University of Phoenix is reaching out to its alumni to give them an opportunity to “pay forward” an education. Alumni, who have graduated from University of Phoenix with a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree, are eligible to nominate an individual to be awarded a full-tuition scholarship* towards an undergraduate degree program of their choice. Through this program, thirty (30) scholarships will be awarded. Recipients may choose to attend a University of Phoenix on-ground campus or may attend University of Phoenix online.

*Nominations are not a guarantee of award. Nominations are reviewed by committee and top 30 ranking recipients are awarded.
