Tuition costs rise an average of 2.6% each year at the University of Phoenix in the US, and the Arizona Diamondbacks family recognizes that individuals face barriers—cost, time, commitments, and circumstances—to reaching their academic and career goals. Scholarships are highly effective and desirable sources of financial support for students as they usually do not require repayment.

“We appreciate the support of the Arizona Diamondbacks in sponsoring the Student ‘D-backs for Change’ scholarship,” said John Woods, PhD, chief academic officer and dean of the University of Phoenix. “Scholarships offer great opportunity and hope for individuals seeking a path to higher education. Because we believe scholarships are not just for a select few, we are grateful to work with the Arizona Diamondbacks to open up more scholarship opportunities for working adults.”

The University of Phoenix offers job-relevant education, personalized support, and flexible, on-demand learning opportunities for working adults – all through affordable, fixed tuition, and time and money-saving options.

“Education should have practical value, which is why we chose to offer the D-backs for Change Scholarship through Phoenix University,” said D-backs President and CEO Derrick Hall. “We know they are committed to student success and accessibility, making it easier to earn a college degree. We are proud to collaborate on this scholarship and provide life-changing support in someone’s academic journey.”

The University of Phoenix offers over 100 online programs aligned with over 300 real-world careers. The University of Phoenix has seven career-focused specialty colleges, with more than 100 degrees and certificates – 80% of which are in high-growth fields. The University of Phoenix has been consistently accredited by the Commission on Higher Education and its predecessor since 1978, meaning that programs meet stringent academic standards.
