Morris K. Udall Scholarship

The Foundation awards approximately 75 scholarships to outstanding students on the basis of merit to two groups of students:

  • Students who are college sophomores or juniors in the current academic year have outstanding potential, and who study the environment and related fields.
  • Native American and Alaska Native students who are college sophomores or juniors in the current academic year have outstanding potential, and are in fields related to health care or tribal public policy.

To be considered, a student must be nominated by his or her college or university using the official nomination materials provided to each institution. Each scholar receives up to $5,000, or the cost of tuition, fees, books, and room and board, whichever is less. Scholarship recipients are eligible for one year of scholarship support per application year. Up to three candidates may be nominated by the University at Buffalo and may not apply directly. The University at Buffalo nomination deadline is December 1, 2015 and the Foundation application deadline is March 2016. Detailed information about the self-nomination process can be obtained from Elizabeth Colucci at colucci3@buffalo.edu.
