This Scholarship was established on March 3, 2015 by the donor as an expression of his Christian faith. The purpose of the Scholarship is to provide financial support and mentorship to career-focused Christians in the secular workforce. The term Tent Maker originated from the apostle Paul, who supported himself while living and preaching in Corinth by making tents (Acts 18:3). “Tentmaking” has come to refer to the activities of any Christian who, while dedicating him or herself to the ministry of the Gospel, receives little or no pay for Church work, but performs other jobs to provide support. Specifically, tentmaking can also refer to a method of international Christian evangelism in which missionaries support themselves by working full-time in the marketplace with their skills and education, instead of receiving financial support from a Church.
