In order to propagate the wave of environmental sustainability and development, The Udall Undergraduate Scholarship seeks to educate college sophomores and juniors on leadership, public service, and environmental issues.
In 2018, the Udall Foundation anticipates awarding 50 scholarships of up to $7,000 each. The Udall scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on Native American self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources.
With a five-day conference aimed to orientate scholars, held each August in Tucson, Arizona, for all new Udall Scholars. Scholars work together on a case study, learn new ways to collaborate, and build community with each other, Udall Alumni, and professionals working on environmental and tribal issues. This orientation is scheduled for the 7th to 12th of August, 2018 and all scholars are required to attend. Scholars may also attend one of the two optional pre-orientation workshops conducted by the Native Nations Institute and the U. S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution. All scholars, whether your focus is the environment, tribal public policy, or health care, will gain new skills and perspectives. Also, scholars will receive a travel scholarship for costs associated with travel to and from Tucson for the scholar orientation. Lodging and meals during orientation will be provided by the Udall Foundation.
