“Education is a transformative gift. It impacts individual lives and families as well as reinvigorates local communities,” said Pat Gottfried, vice president of Corporate Social Responsibility for Apollo Group, the parent company of University of Phoenix. “The most powerful thing we can do as a university is to open the door to opportunities for individuals to earn a college degree. Thus, our scholarship programs are the core of our giving philosophy.”
