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.
