Established by Congress in 1992 to honor Morris King Udall’s 30 years of service in the House of Representatives and enhanced in 2009 to honor Stewart L. Udall’s vast public service, the Udall Foundation is dedicated to educating a new generation of Americans to preserve and protect their national heritage through programs focused on environmental and Native American issues. The Udall Foundation is committed to promoting the principles and practices of environmental conflict resolution.
The Udall Foundation seeks future leaders across a wide spectrum of environ¬mental fields, including policy, engineering, science, education, urban plan¬ning and renewal, business, health, justice, and economics. The foundation also seeks future Native American and Alaska Native leaders in public and community health care, tribal government, and public policy affecting Native American communities, including land and resource management, economic development, and education.
The scholarship is offered to students pursing environmental careers from disciplines including, but not limited to: anthropology, agriculture, biology and other natural sciences, cultural studies, environmental engineering, geography, health care, health science, history, Indian studies, natural resource manage¬ment, political science, pre-law, public policy, sociology, or tribal policy.
The Udall Foundation will award approximately 50 scholarships and 50 honorable mentions to individuals. In awarding the scholarships, consider-ation will be given to the student’s field of study, career objectives, and the extent to which that individual has the commitment and potential to make a contribution to his or her field. The candidate’s plan of study should include coursework in ethics and public policy and/or public or community service experience in the area of the candidate’s career field.
Each scholarship covers up to $5,000 for tuition, fees, books, and room and board. Scholarship recipients are eligible for one year of scholarship support per application year.
