2010 Udall Scholarship Recipient
“As a student and environmentalist, I’m interested in learning about the complex relationship that humans have developed with their environment. Science alone can’t solve all the problems facing our world today; however, through blending science and elements of the humanities, a more comprehensive and lasting approach to conservation can be achieved.”
Established by Congress in 1992, the Morris K. Udall Foundation honors Congressman Udall’s 30-legacy of public service. The Morris K. Udall Foundation awards approximately eighty $5,000 merit-based scholarships each year to undergraduates who either intend to pursue careers related to the environment OR who are Native American or Alaska Native college students who intend to pursue careers in native health care or tribal public policy. The Udall Foundation seeks future leaders across a wide spectrum of environmental fields, including policy, engineering, science, education, urban planning and renewal, business, health, justice, and economics.
