Jonathon Forbes Gugin Scholarship

The Jonathon Forbes Gugin Scholarship honors the memory of Jon Gugin, a 1986 graduate of the University, who died in June 1991 after a prolonged struggle with cancer. Jon majored in Environmental Administration with a minor in political science. This scholarship is awarded to a junior who is majoring in Environmental Administration, who has demonstrated superior academic achievement, and who has a strong commitment to a career in an environmentally related field.
