The UCLA Scholarship Research Center is now coordinating the nomination of UCLA students for most major national scholarships and fellowships, including the Udall Scholarship for students interested in Environmental Careers or Tribal Public Policy or Native Healthcare.


The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment.

In 2017, the Udall Foundation will award 60 scholarships of up to $7,000 each, and anticipates that at least 20 scholarships will be awarded in Tribal Public Policy and Native Health Care. The Udall Scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on American Indian self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources.

Udall Scholars are selected on the basis of:

  • Commitment to a career related to the environment, or to tribal public policy, or to American Indian health care.
  • Leadership, public service, consensus building, and integrity.
  • Academic achievement.
  • An understanding of the Udall legacy, demonstrated through the application essay.

The UCLA campus deadline for the Udall Scholarship is February 2, 2017.
