Teaming Up for Education Scholarship – University of Phoenix

The University of Phoenix is pleased to partner with the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation to offer Education scholarship program.

Established in 1997, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation focuses its efforts on three main areas of need: homelessness, indigent healthcare and children’s programs of all types, including education and youth baseball field development.

In addition, the Foundation has created strategic charitable programs that address the needs of our community including fundraisers that support veterans, first responders, cancer programs and educators – just to name a few.

To date, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation have made charitable contributions totalling more than $55 million to non-profit organizations from across Arizona.

Through this scholarship program, five (5) full-tuition scholarships will be offered. Each scholarship will allow a prospective student the opportunity to complete an undergraduate or master’s degree program at the University of Phoenix. Recipients may choose to attend a University of Phoenix campus or online.
