Now accepting campus applications for Udall undergraduate scholarship

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 $7,000 undergraduate scholarships in two distinct areas.

  1. Students committed to positive change in regard to environmental issues.
  2. Native American/Alaska Native students committed to making a difference for Native American communities, especially in relation to tribal public policy and health care.

If either of these areas describes your career interests, and if you will graduate between May 2023 and May 2024, please consider applying. 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/Alaska Native category must also possess tribal affiliation.

K-State can nominate up to four students to compete nationally in each area, and campus applications are due on Nov. 29. Download the campus application instructions PDF document.

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