Morris K. Udall Scholarship
In honor of the late Member of Congress, Morris K. Udall, the 103d Congress passed legislation in 1992 authorizing The Morris K. Udall Scholarship and Excellence in National Environmental Policy Foundation to award scholarships to undergraduate students who intend to pursue careers related to environmental public policy or who are Native American or Alaska Native undergraduate students who intend to pursue careers in health care or tribal public policy.
The Foundation will award approximately 55 scholarships of up to $5,000 for school-related expenses for one academic year. Each four-year institution of higher education can nominate up to six candidates for this prestigious award.
- Each candidate should be in the sophomore or junior year at the time of nomination

- Each candidate must be nominated by his or her college using the official nomination materials
- The nominee must write a no more than 600 word-long essay citing, in the student's opinion, on the major achievements of Member of Congress Udall and what those achievements mean to the nominee
