The Alexander ('41) and Bess Aschengrau Scholarship was created by Daniel E. and Jeffrey M. Held in September 2003 to memorialize their beloved grandparents. Alexander was born in Poland and immigrated to the U.S. at the age of 10. He graduated from Baruch College with a BBA in Accountancy in 1941 and formed his own accounting firm. Bess was born in the U.S. She also went to school for, and worked in, accounting and met Alexander at one of his client’s offices. Their charitable nature, passed on to their grandsons, prompted the creation of this scholarship to assist deserving students in obtaining a Baruch education.
