The Harold Taber MBA Scholarship Fund

An MBA Mentor who was inspired by what Scripture teaches about Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, originated this scholarship. Jethro was a mentor to Moses, providing instruction on managing people that remains applicable today. Like Jethro, Harold Taber saw an opportunity for mentoring and created Crowell's MBA Mentor Program. This scholarship is named for Harold and is intended to support students in the program as they extend their education and stand in the gap for Christ.

The scholarship award amount is $500-$5,000 per year (divided between fall and spring semesters), based on the applicant’s qualifications.
