Each year, the Udall Foundation awards 50 undergraduate scholarships of up to $5,000 to juniors and seniors in fields related to the environment. The foundation was established by the U.S. Congress in 1992 to honor Morris King Udall's 30 years of service in the House of Representatives. The Foundation is committed to educating a new generation of Americans to preserve and protect their national heritage through studies in the environment, Native American health and tribal policy and effective public policy conflict resolution.

Udall Scholars are interested in the heritage of the United States, including natural resource protection, conservation, and Native American policy, health, and governance. They pursue majors in a variety of fields, including environmental science, philosophy, chemistry, biology, mathematics, and computer science.
