Udall Scholarship

The Udall Scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on Native American self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources. The Udall Foundation will award 60 scholarships of up to $7,000 each to sophomores and juniors committed to careers related to the environment, tribal public policy, or Native American health care. The Udall Foundation seeks future leaders across a wide spectrum of environmental fields, and future Native American and Alaska Native leaders in Native American health care and tribal public policy. Each scholarship provides the following: access to the Udall Alumni Network, a Scholar Orientation, and up to $7,000 for eligible academic expenses. Scholarship recipients are eligible for one year of scholarship support. Scholars selected during their sophomore year may be re-nominated during their junior year.
