The recipients will be announced in January 2011. The entire tuition for the scholarship recipients will be covered. Each winner will select the undergraduate degree program of their choice andchoose to complete their degree online or at a local campus.
In 2006, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, University of Phoenix launched the Paying It Forward Scholarship Program and the following year, 2007, four of the 30 scholarships were earned by Utahns. A total of 120 scholarships have been awarded.
