Are you a Native American student passionate about tribal public policy, healthcare or the environment? If so, you may qualify to win the Udell Scholarship, offered through the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation. If you receive a scholarship through the Udall program, you could receive $5,000 to finance your education. Honorable mentions are also given out.
There are three categories of Udall awards. The first is for students who are dedicated to the environment. For this category, you could be a political science major or a major in urban planning, civil engineering, environmental science, or another related field. The second category is for Native American and Alaskan Native students who are committed to careers in the field of tribal public policy. The third category is for Native American and Alaskan Native students who are committed to improving Native healthcare. To apply, fill out the application form and provide an 800 word essay on a speech, book, public policy statement, or act by either Morris K. Udall or Stewart L. Udall and how it has impacted your goals. Provide transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and get a nomination form from a faculty member. Apply by March 4.
