Volunteering can lead to a scholarship to complete an undergrduate or Master’s degreehandson program from the University of Phoenix.

The HandsOn network, a network that coordinates volunteers for charitable organizations, has partners with the University of Phoenix in its Serve It Forward program. The program will offer 20 scholarships that cover tuition and fees. Recipients may attend any University of Phoenix local campus or online. The scholarships are part of the university’s commitment to help develop leaders in local communities.

The competitive scholarships are open to volunteers of HandsOn Action Centers across the country. Applicants must have performed at least 36 hours of verifiable volunteer work in 2009 and must continue to do so during their scholarship years.

HandsOn Jacksonville will be receiving and evaluating scholarship applications locally. A committee of volunteers and senior staff will select two local applications to forward to the national partner, the HandsOn Network, where a committee of staff and network representatives will select 20 of the most outstanding applications submitted through the centers.
