UdaThe 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. The Udall Foundation awards $7,000 scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment. Udall Scholars attend a 4-day orientation in Tucson, Arizona and gain access to the Udall Alumni Network, an association of environmental and tribal leaders sharing innovative ideas, professional advice, and job and internship opportunities.
