The Aubrey Rose Foundation Scholarships


We believe that humanity begins in children and their realization of how valuable their actions, words, or even a smile can be toward individual growth and to the everyday well-being of the people surrounding them. In memory of Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp, we follow through our mission of carrying out the positive impact she had made on so many people by helping children and families who have also made a positive impact on the people around them.

Since 2001

Since 2001, we have organized a children’s educational scholarship program in honor of Aubrey Rose. Aubrey made such a difference in many people’s lives within her three short years here on this earth. To honor her and her achievements, we base our scholarships on a child’s kindness and willingness to give back to our community. Our scholarships are for those students who have a compassionate heart, unlike other scholarships that are based on academics or athletic ability.

How do you become a recipient of an Aubrey Rose Hollenkamp Scholarship? Scholarship applicants submit an essay and are judged by a panel consisting of the student’s school staff members, a Scholarship Committee, Aubrey’s grandparent, Nancy Frondorf, Aubrey’s parents, Jerry and Nancy Hollenkamp, and Aubrey’s sister and brother, Carly and Spencer.

In 2007

In 2007, we decided to reward those scholarship recipients and their families with the “Above and Beyond” Award which signifies those that have stayed connected with us and continually help us out after their freshman year of school. We’re very honored to have some shining stars amongst our scholarship families, and we wanted to reward them with $1000 for their next year of school.

The scholarships are given out to the students at their graduation or their awards ceremonies where the parents are invited. This is an extremely important piece of our scholarship presentation so that the parents are surprised along with the scholarship recipient to hear their name being recognized for them having a kindheart. A scholarship reception is held each year to honor the students.

Challenge Your Heart is a program where we ask our scholarship recipients (past and/or present) to participate. It’s not mandatory, but perhaps it’s something that you would like to do to help us help many more families and their children.

The concept is that you receive 75 envelopes and you try to get donations that equal the envelope. For example, for envelope #37, you get $37 in a donation or donations to total $37. If all 75 envelopes are filled with the corresponding dollar amount, you would raise $2,850.00!
