Because contributions to the environment, tribal public policy and Native American health care can be made in many different
ways, Udall Scholars represent a broad range of academic majors and career interests. Recent Udall Scholars have majored in
environmental sciences and policy studies, agriculture, political science, natural resource management, sociology,
anthropology, American Indian studies, tribal public policy, history, English, theater, landscape architecture, and public
health, to name just a few areas.
If you are interested in applying for a Udall Scholarship:
The Foundation does not accept applications directly from students. Applicants must be nominated by their
college or university, and many schools have an internal selection process as well. Each school appoints
a faculty representative to act as a liaison between the institution and the Foundation. You will want to
work closely with your faculty representative to meet all institutional and Foundation deadlines.
