Udall Undergraduate Scholarship

About the Udall Undergraduate Scholarship

The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to Native American nations or to the environment. The scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on Native American governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources. The awards average $7,000 each. For more information visit here
