Description

The Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation awards approximately 60 scholarships each year to undergraduate students who intend to pursue careers related to the environment and conservation as well as to Native American and Alaska Native undergraduate students who intend to pursue careers in health care and tribal policy. Scholarships may be used toward eligible undergraduate expenses for tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,000. Recipients are eligible for one year of support. Scholars selected during their sophomore year may be renominated during the next year's competition.

Eligibility

Applicants must be sophomores or juniors and may may apply in both their sophomore and junior years. Applicants may be in any major, but must be committed to a career related to the environment, tribal policy, or Native American health care (only Native Americans and Alaska Natives are eligible to apply in tribal public policy or Native American health care).  Applicants should have a college grade-point average of at least a "B" or the equivalent, must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or U.S. permanent residents, and must be nominated by the college.

Selection Criteria

Udall Scholars are selected on the basis of:

  • Commitment to a career related to the environment, or to tribal public policy, or to American Indian health care;
  • Leadership, public service, consensus building, and integrity;
  • Academic achievement
  • An understanding of the Udall legacy, demonstrated through the application essay.
