University Of Phoenix To Award 40 Full-Ride Scholarships. Will You Vie For One?

For nearly 40 years, University of Phoenix (UOPX) has been helping working adults attain their education and career goals. To continue this support, we are providing 40 new full-tuition scholarships for those who are chasing dreams bigger than themselves.

This new scholarship program is another step toward meeting the needs of our communities through greater involvement in the key areas of education, health care and criminal justice.

Currently, only 15 percent of teachers in the U.S. are Black or Latino, and 2 percent are African American men, according to the U.S. Department of Education.  Jones explained,“The University of Phoenix School of Education is one of the largest educational schools in the country, and so we feel that we are primed to be able to offer these 40 scholarships to actually impact that number.”

For more information about the program or to register visit www.phoenix.edu/dream. You may also review the eligibility criteria for being considered for one of the 40 full-tuition scholarships UOPX will award in either education, health care or criminal justice.
