Brown Foundation-Earl Rudder Memorial Outstanding Student Award
The Brown Foundation-Earl Rudder Memorial Outstanding Student Award is the highest honor bestowed upon a graduating senior at Texas A&M University. Only two Brown-Rudder awards are presented at Texas A&M each year. The award is normally presented at commencement exercises at Texas A&M each May.
The award honors top students who exemplify the leadership and related traits of the late Gen. Earl Rudder, a World War II hero who served as president of Texas A&M from 1959 until his death in 1970. To be eligible for the Brown-Rudder award, a student must demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, leadership, be a member of an honor or professional society and have participated in extracurricular activities, including community service, with dedication to Texas A&M and its principles.
