Udall Scholarship campus applications open

Submitted by Kali Poenitske

The Udall Foundation was established to honor the commitment of Morris and Stewart Udall to Native American self-governance, health care and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources throughout their long careers in public service. The Udall Scholarship seeks to recognize this legacy by awarding scholarships in two distinct areas. First, it recognizes students who are committed to positive change in regard to environmental issues. Second, it recognizes 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 will graduate between May 2022 and May 2023, please consider applying.

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. Students applying in the Native American/Native Alaskan category must also possess tribal affiliation.

Campus applications are due on Nov. 30. To request a copy of the campus application, please email Jim Hohenbary, the Udall faculty representative for Kansas State University, at jimlth@k-state.edu

If students have questions or would like to discuss other scholarship options, please contact the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships at 785-532-3422 or visit the website at k-state.edu/nationalscholarships.
