|Udall Scholarship Opportunity|
|Established by Congress in 1992 to honor Morris K. Udall’s 30 years of service in the House of Representatives and enhanced by Congressional action in 2009 to honor Stewart L. Udall’s vast public service, the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation is dedicated to educating a new generation of Americans to preserve and protect their national heritage through scholarship, fellowship, and internship programs focused on environmental and Native American issues. The Udall Foundation is also committed to promoting the principles and practices of environmental conflict resolution.
The Udall Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to the environment and are pursuing careers where they will be able to impact environmental issues. The scholarship also recognizes Native American and Alaska Native students who are pursuing careers related to tribal public policy or Native health care and are committed to improving conditions for members of their tribal community or Native Americans in general. The scholarship is for up to $5,000 for educational expenses.
• Only Native Americans and Alaska Natives are eligible to apply in tribal public policy or Native American health care.
• Native American students studying tribal public policy or native health do not need to demonstrate commitment to the environment.
• Likewise, students pursuing environmentally related careers do not need to be Native American, nor do they need to demonstrate commitment to tribal public policy or Native health.
• Be a current college sophomore (approximately 45 credits completed) • Be committed to careers related to the environment, tribal public policy, or Native health care (applicants in the tribal public policy or Native health care categories must also be Native American or Alaska Native);
• Have a grade point average equivalent to a “B” (3.0 or higher); and
