Internal Application Deadline for Nomination: January 30, 2020
The Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation is committed to increasing awareness of the importance of the nation’s natural resources. The Udall Scholarship awards up to $7,000 and access to the Udall Scholars network to sophomores and juniors who are passionate about the environment (in any field), OR who are Native American and intend to pursue careers in Native health care or tribal public policy. Institutional nominations are due to the Foundation at the end of the first week of March.
Please review all eligibility requirements and rules on the official Udall Scholarship website. You must make an appointment with Dr. Vin Moscardelli, the Director of the Office of National Scholarships & Fellowships, to discuss your eligibility before you apply for nomination. You can only access the application for nomination via a link provided by ONSF.
The Udall Scholarship application is quite involved, and includes several essays, so it’s imperative to start early.
You must be nominated by the University to apply for the national competition. The UConn application for nomination deadline for the 2020 Udall competition is: 4:00PM, Thursday, January 30, 2020.
Here’s what you’ll need to complete the application:
- Unofficial UConn transcript & any grade reports from other institutions
- Contact information for recommenders
- 1-2 pp resume
- Polished & edited essays and well-crafted answers to questions (you may copy & paste)
