Udall Scholarship. Last year, Bethany Pratt (’10) became Centre’s FIRST Udall Scholar—this year it could be YOU. The Morris K. Udall Foundation offers a highly competitive scholarship to support students dedicated to continuing their education with a focus on EITHER environmental policy or Native American health and tribal policy. This scholarship is awarded annually to approximately 80 students nationwide and provides $5,000 that can be used for tuition, room, board, and other educational expenses. It is widely recognized as a most prestigious scholarship. Successful scholars should have a GPA of at least 3.0 and, most importantly, must have a strong record of involvement in either environmental or Native American health and tribal policy issues. The scholarship is open to students who are currently either sophomores or juniors. Centre students with a strong, professional commitment to careers that focus on environmental policy are strongly encouraged to consider applying for this scholarship. The Udall foundation is particularly interested in applicants with a documented record of environmental leadership. Any students with a documented Native American heritage can also apply. All applicants must be formally nominated by their home institution. Applications are due in early March but it is important to get an early start on the application process. Please contact Dr. Chris Barton (Y220) if you think you might be interested in applying for this scholarship. Click here for more details.
