The foundation, and Udall Scholarships, honor the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, brothers who both served in the U.S. Congress. Morris Udall is best known for the impact he made on the environment, public lands, natural resources and tribal self-governance. In addition to serving in Congress, Stewart Udall served as U.S. Secretary of the Interior (1961-69) and worked as an environmental lawyer. 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.
Your Udall application will consist of: an 11-question application; an 800-word essay related to the Udall Foundation’s core values; transcripts for all college coursework; and, three letters of recommendation that speak to your leadership, public service and academic achievements. Additional documentation is required for applicants in tribal public policy and health care, and for U.S. permanent residents.
