Recipients can pursue bachelor’s or master’s degree at University of Phoenix
Together with the Military Police Regimental Association (MPRA), the University of Phoenix is offering one full-tuition scholarship for a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree program for standard MPRA members or immediate family members of a standard MPRA member.
Military members and families may encounter challenges of time, commitments, and circumstance to reaching their academic and career goals. The University of Phoenix Military Police Regimental Association Scholarship is intended to recognize the military service commitment and provide an opportunity to further education goals for military police members and families.
“We want to honor the service of military police and their families,” stated Eric Ryan, Marine Corps veteran and senior director of Military Operations at University of Phoenix. “While scholarships offer significant opportunity and hope to individuals seeking a pathway to higher education, this scholarship is also intended to recognize the unique service and commitment of our military police.”
Together with its members, MPRA works to provide a variety of services and assistance to Military Police leaders, soldiers and their families around the world.
"With the unique challenges that military service often brings, to not only the service member but also our families, it is a great segway provided by the University of Phoenix to our military police through this scholarship,” states Rick Harne, MPRA Executive Director. “Funding is a huge obstacle in the way for many and this opportunity removes that barrier. The MPRA has enjoyed a long tradition of working with the University of Phoenix and this is yet another opportunity to showcase this.”
University of Phoenix offers more than 100 online programs aligned to 300+ real-world occupations. University of Phoenix includes seven specialized, career-focused colleges, with over 100 degree and certificate options — 80% of which are in high-growth fields. University of Phoenix has been continuously accredited by the Higher Learning Commission since 1978, which means programs meet rigorous academic standards.
The scholarship application is open until November 29. Learn more here about the University of Phoenix Military Police Regimental Association Scholarship.
