Udall Scholarship

The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to Native American nations or to the environment. Specifically, Udall awards scholarships related to 1) the environment to undergraduates interested in conservation and environmental issues, 2) tribal policy to Native Americans and Alaska Natives working on an array of policy issues in Indian country, and 3) native health care to Native Americans and Alaska Natives pursuing health-related careers.  The Udall Scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on American Indian self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources.
