The Udall Scholarship is a merit award from the Udall Foundation that provides leadership, public service, internship, and networking opportunities, in addition to up to $7,000 for eligible academic expenses, to 60 second and third year students with leadership and public service who have demonstrated a commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment.


Permanent Resident, U.S. Citizen
Junior, Sophomore


Udall Scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit to two groups of students: a.) those engaged in environmental issues through perspectives of (but not limited to) policy, engineering, science, education, urban planning and renewal, business, health, justice, and economics; and b.) those with American Indian or Alaska Natives backgrounds who engaged in tribal policy or Native health care. The Udall Scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on American Indian self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources.

Students need not be enrolled full time in coursework during the year they apply for the Udall, but must be considered degree-seeking by the college or university they attend. During their award year (both fall and spring of the academic year following their application semester), all scholars must be enrolled full time.
