The Udall Scholarship program awards merit-based scholarships for college sophomores and
juniors pursuing studies leading to a public service career in tribal health, tribal public policy, or
the environment. Two- and four-year college students are encouraged to apply. Scholars
participate in a five-day Orientation in Arizona to learn from and network with experts, their
peers, and members of the Udall family. The award includes life-time membership in the Udall
alumni community, a vibrant professional organization offering job and internship opportunities,
and up to $7,000 for tuition, fees, room and board, and books and supplies. Applications must be
submitted through a Udall faculty representative at the student's college or university. In 2017,
60 awards will be made; we anticipate awarding up to 20 of these in the tribal public policy and
tribal health categories. The application deadline is March 15, 2017.
