Brown Scholar Testimonial


Roderic Pettigrew PhD, MD – Chief Executive Officer of Engineering Health, Executive Dean of Engineering Medicine

In my 35 years as a professional in industry, academia, and the national government, my experience with the Brown Foundation stands out among all education-supportive philanthropic institutions that I have encountered. The commitment of its principals, Craig Brown and Sue  Smith, to advancing excellence in education and productive careers is exceptional. They are creative thinkers and impassioned doers. An example is their proposal to create and fund the forward-looking Early To EnMed program, known as E2EnMed. This identifies students among National Merit Scholars who exhibit great character, an outstanding achievement trajectory and want to pursue engineering and medicine. The Brown Foundation provides qualified students with a full TAMU undergraduate scholarship and subsequent graduate scholarship for our unique EnMed program in the Intercollegiate School of Engineering Medicine. Such students are supported through eight years of schooling, earning a BS (4 years), and simultaneous MD and Engineering Masters degrees (4years). Perhaps most importantly, these stellar students promise to emerge as even more stellar medical innovators, taught to invent solutions to medical challenges. The overarching goal is to trailblaze the next generation of medical transformers and the Brown Foundation, through its incredible generosity and ardent devotion to a better future, is helping to lead the way.

The Brown Foundation is an exemplar of all that is good in philanthropy and higher education. A visionary Foundation that values our Nation’s values and encourages the most successful high school students to reach for the stars… And in doing so help ensure a brighter future for all of humanity. I am proud to know Craig and Sue and humbled at the energy, passion, and purpose they bring to Texas A&M University. We are forever grateful and hope that their example encourages others to invest philanthropically in causes that create generational impact.
