“We at NNAHRA are ecstatic to be working with the University of Phoenix as a premier partner and to be able to offer this tremendous opportunity to a NNAHRA member.

The University of Phoenix is proud to collaborate with the National Native American Human Resources Association by supporting higher education throughout the Tribal HR community. In addition to the many benefits NNAHRA members have at the University of Phoenix, the university is offering a full scholarship to one employee who works at a tribal entity, is a member of NNAHRA and is working in the HR field; it is a single recipient full-tuition scholarship for a bachelor’s or master’s degree at the University of Phoenix and covers electronic resource fees.
National Indian Gaming Association Chairman Ernie Stevens explains his experience at the University of Phoenix: “While earning my master’s in management degree at the University of Phoenix, the Tribal Specialists were invaluable with immediate support and provided resources that helped me stay engaged and on track for graduation,” shares Stevens. “I am excited that this scholarship will offer the opportunity for other tribal students to pursue their educational goals.”
“The University of Phoenix is committed to helping tribal communities, enterprises, schools, and healthcare facilities upskill and reskill tribal members and non-tribal employees by providing tribal specific resources, support, and future talent planning. This scholarship provides an opportunity for one more tribal employee to become more valuable to their HR Team and employer while continuing their personal and professional growth through education,” says Patrick Horning, Tribal Strategic Alliance Executive, University of Phoenix.
