The Morris K. Udall Foundation furthers the late congressman’s (D-Arizona 1961-91) legacy by awarding 80 scholarships to students in their sophomore or junior year who are committed to careers related to the environment, tribal public policy, or Native American health care. Scholars receive an award of up to $5,000 for tuition, room and board, or other educational expenses. Princeton University had one winner this year, Ashley Eberhart ’13, who is a politics major and is pursuing three certificates in environmental, urban, and American studies.

The highly qualified class of Udall Scholars was selected from 585 candidates nominated by 274 colleges and universities. The 2012 Udall Scholars will assemble in Tucson, Arizona in early August to receive their awards and meet policymakers and community leaders in environmental fields, tribal health care, and governance.
