MCP Student Information

MCP Spouse Scholarship

The Military Spouse Scholarship was created to support Military Spouses allowing a 25% tuition reduction. The scholarship is available to spouses of service members who take courses in HPU’s Military Campus Programs 10 week terms.

Our commitment to servicemembers and their families runs deep at Hawai‘i Pacific University. It’s why we’re known as one of America’s leading “military-friendly” universities, recognized as such by the Council of College and Military Educators, Military Advanced Education magazine and GI Jobs, among others. It’s the motivation behind the development of a specific scholarship to support military spouses with their educational and professional goals.
