Now accepting applications for Udall Undergraduate Scholarship, information sessions available

Submitted by Kali Poenitske

The Udall Scholarship seeks to recognize the legacy of Morris and Stewart Udall by awarding scholarships in two distinct areas. First, they recognize students who are committed to positive change in regard to environmental issues. Second, they recognize Native American/Alaska Native students who are committed to making a difference through tribal public policy or native health care. If either of these describes your career interests, and you are a sophomore or junior, please consider applying.

K-State can nominate up to four students in each category and will award a $1,000 scholarship to each nominated student.

Nationally, the Udall Scholarship awards up to $7,000 for tuition/fees and living expenses for an academic year. U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents with relevant leadership, volunteer or professional experience, and/or activism are encouraged to apply.

Campus applications are due on Oct. 21. To obtain a copy of the application, contact Jim Hohenbary, Udall faculty representative, at jimlth@k-state.edu

For students wishing to learn more about this opportunity, several Udall information sessions will be offered in 215 Fairchild Hall:

  • 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23.
  • 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24.
  • 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25.
