New Freshman Scholarships

Description: Full-time, degree seeking, undergraduate freshman applicants are considered for academic merit scholarships at the time of admission based on academic abilities. Academic merit scholarships are applied towards tuition. To determine your academic merit scholarship eligibility, please complete an application for undergraduate admission.

For information on specific opportunities for new freshmen, please contact the Office of Admissions.

HPU reserves the right to cancel, reduce, or substitute an institutional scholarship. HPU scholarships that pay institutional costs, such as tuition, will be reduced in the case where a student receives other direct tuition benefits from an outside source, such as, but not limited to, VA tuition benefits or employer tuition payments made directly to the institution. Tuition scholarships from all sources cannot exceed the cost of actual tuition, and must meet the terms of the specific scholarship.

If you have any questions or need further information, please feel free to contact the Financial Aid Office by emailing or by calling (808) 544-0253 or 1-866-CALL-HPU (Toll-free: U.S. and Canada Only).
