David Pugh, FAICP

Texas A&M’s Professional program, Master of Urban Plannin (MUP) established the David Pugh Scholarship after David’s retirement. The scholarship is awarded annually to a first year student who demonstrates a spirit of service within and outside the program. It is generally considered the highest honor that a first year student can receive. A David Pugh Award (non-financial) award is also given to a graduating student to recognize outstanding contributions to the program.

The Pugh endowment has not reached the minimum; however, it continues to produce a modest income that can be awarded. For those that would like to donate to the Pugh Scholarship, please see your options below:
