Apply for the Udall Scholarship, which is for students who demonstrate through their academic program and service-oriented extracurricular activities 1) a strong commitment to pursuing a career related to improving or preserving the environment OR, 2) for Native American or Alaska Native candidates, a strong commitment to a career in any area of health care or tribal public policy. About 50 scholarships will be given this year. The award provides up to $7,000 toward tuition, fees, books, and room and board, plus round-trip expenses to attend a four-day orientation with all Udall Scholars in early August. The orientation is a unique feature of the Udall and allows students to network with similarly minded students, activists, and public servants. Read here about a JHU Udall winner's experience.
