BROWNWOOD – January 18, 2023 – Howard Payne University recently announced the Church Matching Scholarship Program, in which church gifts of up to $3,500 per student, per academic year, will be matched by HPU. The scholarship program applies to full- and part-time graduate and undergraduate students enrolled at HPU.

Dr. Ben Martin, associate vice president for enrollment management, emphasized that the scholarship program is an opportunity for HPU to partner with churches as both seek to further the kingdom of God through the next generation of believers.
