The Morris K. Udall Foundation

The Morris K. Udall Foundation is committed to educating a new generation of Americans to preserve and protect their national heritage through studies in the environment, Native Americans health and tribal policy. To encourage studies in this area, the Morris K. Udall Scholarship was established.

Because environmental issues can be approached in a multidisciplinary way, the scholarship is offered to students from a broad range of disciplines such as Biology, and other natural sciences, natural resource management, Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, History, and Public Policy. It is anticipated that no matter what the candidates plan of study, it will include course work in ethics and public policy and include community service experience.
