Abram Family Scholarship
This scholarship was created in 2021 as a tribute to the 33 years of foster parenting by Bob and Nancy Abram. Bob and Nancy were married 63 years prior to Bob’s death in 2020. As foster parents in the state of Arkansas and then later as family teachers at the Lena Pope Home in Ft. Worth, Texas, Bob and Nancy were sought after to take on the toughest cases. They received the Foster Parents of the Year Award for the State of Texas. During their lifetime, they fostered over 300 kids, from infants to teenagers. Bob and Nancy have first-hand knowledge of the challenges that only foster youth experience. This award is not only to support the financial needs experienced by former foster youth but it is intended to encourage students who need a “chosen family” to keep reaching for their potential because students need more than financial support —they need someone who believes in them during the tough times.
