Letters of recommendation are the most important component to an application, next to the essays written by the candidates. Take a look at our referee guidelines for the Morris K. Udall Scholarship.
The Morris K. Udall Foundation awards approximately 60 Scholarships each year to future leaders across a wide spectrum of environmental fields, including policy, engineering, science, education, urban planning and renewal, business, health, justice, and economics. The Foundation also seeks future Native American and Alaska Native leaders in public and community health care, tribal government and public policy affecting Native American communities, including land and resource management, economic development and education.
*Nominees in the categories of tribal public policy or Native American health care must be Native American or Alaska Native.
Please note that the student has been asked to request three letters of recommendation. These are to include one from a current or recent faculty member who can discuss the nominee’s potential, a current or recent faculty member in the nominee’s field of study and another individual who can attest to the nominee’s capabilities.
Please submit your letter of recommendation by Dec. 1 via email to Elizabeth Colucci (email@example.com).
