Eligibility: Applicants must be US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents, a sophomore or junior with a GPA of B or higher at an accredited 2- or 4-year college or university, and interested in a career related to the environment or, if of Native American descent, tribal policy or Native American healthcare.

The Morris K. Udall Scholarship is a federally-funded grant intended to help support promising scholars of any heritage in the field of Environmental Studies, or talented Native American scholars interested in the fields of tribal policy or Native American medicine.  Named in honor of Morris K. Udall, a long-serving congressman from Arizona renowned for his championing of environmental and Native American causes, the scholarship is awarded to approximately 80 students each year whose studies carry on Udall's commitment to these areas.
