Udall Undergraduate Scholarship
The Udall Foundation awards 55 scholarships of up to $7,000 to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to Native American nations or to the environment.
Are you working towards positive solutions to environmental challenges or to issues impacting Indian country? Have you demonstrated your commitment to one of these areas through public service? Do you inspire and motivate others to take action? Are you committed to making a difference through civility and consensus building? If you answered “yes” to these questions, the Udall Scholarship may be right for you.
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.
