PHOENIX -- October 9, 2013

University of Phoenix® and the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of
the United States (EANGUS) We Care for America Foundation has selected three
recipients to receive full-tuition scholarships. Recipients chosen were either
current members or immediate family members of EANGUS, a professional,
national organization that represents enlisted men and women in the Army and
Air National Guard. Scholarship recipients will complete either an
undergraduate or master’s degree program at University of Phoenix.

The 2013 University of Phoenix EANGUS Scholarship recipients are:

  *Khoi T. “Paul” Nguyen, a maintenance management analyst (A1C) in the U.S.
    Air Force (USAF) from Glendale, Ariz., will pursue a bachelor’s degree in
    business management. Nguyen intends to use his degree toward becoming a
    commissioned officer in the USAF. Nguyen’s parents sought asylum in
    Berlin, Germany as Vietnam War refugees. Growing up in that environment
    led him to work with those who have lived under similar circumstances and
    have enhanced his understanding of “service over self.” Nguyen will use
    his degree to help organizations be more productive and efficient, both
    nationally and internationally.
  *Kristen Heintschel, a clinical services nurse with the American Red Cross
    in Maumee, Ohio, and who is the daughter of an EANGUS member, will pursue
    a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). She will use the degree to
    increase her knowledge of health promotion, disease prevention and risk
    reduction. Upon obtaining her BSN, Heintschel seeks to further her
    education in nursing or a related medical field.
  *Duncan Hannigan is a chief master sergeant (E-9) with the Arizona Air
    National Guard in Phoenix, Ariz. He will pursue a Master of Business
    Administration degree to heighten his leadership skills and to assist him
    with his goal of becoming a state command chief. When Hannigan’s dreams of
    becoming a pilot were dashed as a result of losing a kidney, he
    immediately refocused his career goals and has become a lifelong learner.
    From training others in his unit to educating the public about the USAF,
    Hannigan will use his degree to help him expand his career goals in the
    military.

“EANGUS  would sincerely like to thank University of Phoenix for the
sponsorship of our We Care for America Scholarship Program,” said EANGUS
Scholarship Committee Chairman Ronnie Emerson. “Thanks to their generous
sponsorship, we were able to recognize deserving EANGUS members for their
academic effort, which allows them to further their education to better
prepare themselves for what lies ahead.”

"University of Phoenix is pleased to partner with EANGUS to offer its members
the opportunity to achieve their educational goals," said University of
Phoenix Military Division Associate Regional Vice President retired Army Col.
Garland Williams. "The 2013 University of Phoenix EANGUS scholarships are an
excellent example of how we demonstrate our corporate social responsibility by
providing quality education to civilian and military students throughout the
U.S."

University of Phoenix EANGUS Scholarships demonstrate the University’s
corporate social responsibility to provide access to education opportunities.
