According to the MPRA website, the MPRA “is the professional organization dedicated to promote the pride, heritage and history of the Regiment. In addition, we exist to support the Regiments future for our members, families and friends.”
MPRA awarded 28 recipients for the scholarship.
“We exceeded our goal of 77 scholarship applications in honor of the 77th Military Police Corps Anniversary,” the website says. “The MPRA Scholarship Program awards scholarships annually to children and spouses of Standard Members of the MPRA. Students may be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in an accredited college or university in a program of undergraduate and graduate studies. The program was established in 2006 with the purpose of providing educational tools to the family members of the Military Police Corps Regiment. The MPRA Scholarship is made possible through generous contributions from friends of the MPRA and from proceeds from a variety of fundraising efforts. We have awarded $238,300 to 263 family members to continue their educational goals.”
