FAQ

  • How competitive is the Udall Scholarship?

The Udall Scholarship is a prestigious, competitive scholarship. OSU can nominate up to 8 students to continue to the national selection process: four in the Environment category and four in the Native Healthcare/Policy category. At the national level, the Udall Foundation awards 50 scholarships every year. 

  • What does the process to get campus endorsement look like? 

Our office coordinates faculty committees who help us review applications, provide feedback, and select nominees/make endorsement decisions.  Our goal is to help candidates put forward the strongest possible applications to compete at the national/international level. Since we are limited to 8 candidates for endorsement, our faculty committees select the nominees.
