Aaron’s passion for international travel exemplified his desire to live life to its fullest.
Through an annual study abroad scholarship at the University of Washington, the Foundation encourages and supports those students who have a similar passion for life.
In April 2007, Aaron Schulte (Washington 2003) lost his year-long battle with colon cancer. Although only 26 years old, Aaron lived a rich and full life and left an amazing legacy. He was a member of Fiji Sires & Sons with his dad, Steve (Washington 1973).
Since the time of Aaron’s passing, Kris Lindquist ’03, Hamilton Gardiner ’03, Ben Adams ’03, Jeremy Kuhlmann ’03, and Sean Newell ’03 have dedicated much of their time and emotions to celebrating Aaron’s life by creating a scholarship fund in his name. On June 5, 2007, the Aaron Schulte Memorial Foundation (ASMF) was incorporated
The goal of the foundation is to grant an annual educational scholarship to one Fiji student at the University of Washington. The scholarship funds are to be used by the recipients for tuition in study-abroad programs. During their time abroad, the recipients will experience an adventure similar to the one that changed Aaron’s life forever, when he studied abroad in Florence, Italy, during the summer of 2001.
