Congratulations, Teacher of the Year!

Because of your dedication and inspired approach to helping change lives every day, you’ve earned this prestigious award. Your students, co-workers and administrators all agree that you deserve this special recognition.

Now, it’s your chance to recognize other deserving individuals.

CCSSO recognizes one educator from each state and territory within the U.S. for their outstanding contribution to education. Therefore, University of Phoenix developed a unique scholarship program specifically for the Council of Chief State School Officers’ (CCSSO™) Teacher of the Year® program. As a 2016 State/Territory Teacher of the Year (STOY), you now have the opportunity to “teach forward” your award by nominating someone in your community for a full-tuition scholarship to University of Phoenix.

STOY’s are able to select an individual who resides within the educator’s state/territory, and who might not have the opportunity to advance his/her education. Each scholarship will allow a prospective student the opportunity to complete an undergraduate or master’s degree in any one of the University’s many fields of study. Recipients may choose to attend a University of Phoenix on-ground campus or may attend University of Phoenix online. Up to fifty-seven (57) full-tuition scholarships will be awarded.

Again, congratulations! We’re deeply honored to meet you — and to celebrate your excellence in education.
