The Mephibosheth Endowed Scholarship Fund was established by the late Peter DeKorte of Hawthorne, New Jersey. Mr. DeKorte, a successful businessman who had a disability, established this scholarship fund out of gratitude to God for all he had done for him. He wanted to share some of the blessings he had received from our loving God. He named the fund "Mephibosheth" since "he too had dined at the King's table" (2 Sam. 9:13).
