Udall Scholarship

Requires campus nomination and must be submitted through the Fellowships Office.

The Udall Foundation seeks to educate a new generation to preserve and protect their national heritage through studies in the environment and related fields, or Native Americans and Alaska Natives who study health care and tribal policy. The Udall Scholarship recognizes undergraduates who exhibit leadership, character, integrity and a commitment to public service.


Up to $7,000


The MU nomination process uses the national application system. Contact Ms. Rachel Newman, Udall campus representative, by email at newmanra@missouri.edu to get access to the application.

A committee will review all applications submitted by the campus deadline to determine which students receive a campus nomination. As stated on the Udall Scholarship website, the University of Missouri may nominate up to “four applicants whose careers will benefit Indian country (the tribal policy and Native health care categories)” and up to four candidates “whose careers will benefit the environment.”

Candidates who receive a campus nomination will work closely with Fellowships and Advanced Studies staff to revise application materials prior to the national deadline.
