Stephanie and Todd Routh of Austin, Texas have committed a $2.6 million gift to the Texas A&M Foundation to support first-generation students at Texas A&M University. Their endowment will create The Stephanie Duprie Routh ’93 and Todd Routh ’86 First Generation Program.
The couple’s gift will bolster efforts within Texas A&M’s Office for Student Success, which was established in 2019 with an emphasis on helping first-generation students successfully navigate collegiate life. First-generation students — those whose parents have not earned a bachelor’s degree — make up close to 25 percent of the undergraduate population at Texas A&M.
