The Udall Foundation seeks future leaders across a wide spectrum of environmental fields, including policy, engineering, science, education, urban planning and renewal, business, health, justice, and economics. The Foundation regularly awards 80 scholarships and 50 honorable mentions on the basis of merit to sophomore and junior level college students who have demonstrated commitment to careers related to the environment. Udall Scholars take part in a four-day Orientation in Tucson, Arizona where they meet with other Scholars, elected officials and environmental leaders. Scholars also gain access to a network of environmental policy professionals through the Udall Alumni listserv.
Because contributions to the environment 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.
Award Amount: The Udall Scholarship provides up to $5,000 for tuition, room and board, or other educational expenses. Udall Scholarships may be used for tuition, fees, books, room and board, or other specifically approved expenses.
Duration: The Udall Scholarship provides one year of support. Sophomores who receive a Udall Scholarship are eligible to reapply for a second year of support.
UMCP Campus Deadline: Friday, February 8, 2013 - All Maryland applicants for nomination to the Udall Scholarship competition must turn in their applications online with supporting materials to the National Scholarships Office, 2403 Marie Mount Hall, by this date.
