UDALL UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP
The Udall Undergraduate Scholarship (https://www.udall.gov/ourprograms/scholarship/scholarship.aspx) offers a scholarship 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. 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 2023 in Tucson, Arizona. Scholars also 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/Native Americans or address and impact health care for tribes or Native Americans
On Thursday, December 1 at 2-3 p.m. via Zoom, the Undergraduate Fellowship Office is holding an information session and workshop 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 content for their application essays.
