Udall Undergraduate Scholarship Info Session

Are you a highly motivated student with a commitment to the environment or Native American nations? Do you have experience working on these issues on campus or in your communities? Consider applying to the Udall Undergraduate Scholarship!

This program offers a scholarship of up to $7,000 to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to the environment or Native American nations. In addition to the scholarship funds, awardees attend a 5-day Udall orientation with other scholars, elected officials, and environmental and tribal leaders in August 2024 in Tucson, Arizona and gain lifelong access to a network of environmental professionals and Native American health and tribal policy professionals through the Udall alumni listserv.

The environmental category is open to all sophomores and juniors planning careers that address and impact environmental issues on a local, national, or global scale. To apply in the tribal policy/health care category you must be a sophomore or junior who identifies as Native American or Alaskan Native and be planning a career which will enable you to make a difference for tribes and Native Americans or will enable you to address and impact health care for tribes and Native Americans.

On Thursday, November 30th at 2-3 pm, the Undergraduate Fellowship Office is holding an information session for the Udall Scholarship for undergraduate students in their sophomore and junior year. We’ll discuss the objectives of the award, eligibility requirements, and application components. Participants will also engage in guided brainstorming processes to generate ideas for their application essays. The info session will be hybrid. Please register on Zoom here or join in Kuhn 201.
