Udall Scholarship for students interested in Environmental Careers or Tribal Public Policy or Native Healthcare

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Greetings Everyone, 

The Undergraduate Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences and the UCLA Scholarship Research Center are now coordinating the nomination of UCLA students for most major national scholarships and fellowships, including the Udall Scholarship for students interested in Environmental Careers or Tribal Public Policy or Native Healthcare.

The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment.

In 2016, the Udall Foundation will award 60 scholarships of up to $7,000 each, and anticipates that at least 20 scholarships will be awarded in Tribal Public Policy and 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.

Udall Scholars are selected on the basis of:

  • Commitment to a career related to the environment, or to tribal public policy, or to American Indian health care.
  • Leadership, public service, consensus building, and integrity.
  • Academic achievement.
  • An understanding of the Udall legacy, demonstrated through the application essay.

As part of our effort to inform and recruit students for these prestigious and lucrative scholarship opportunities, we are asking for your assistance in forwarding this email to your student list-serve and posting copies of the attached flyers in areas where students will see them.  We appreciate anything you can do to encourage exceptional students in your department to apply.  Attached please find  an electronic copies of printable flyers for the Udall Scholarship for Environmental Studies and the Udall Scholarship for students interested in Tribal Policy or Native Healthcare
