Congratulations to OSU's Hunter Calvert for being named a 2021 Udall Honorable Mention! Hunter is a second year student majoring in Environmental Sciences with an Environmental Agriculture focus. He is passionate about envisioning a world that uses sustainable urban agriculture to transform cities into food oases, habitat, and natural cultural spaces. After graduation, Hunter plans to pursue a master's degree in environmental design in order to design sustainable food systems in suburban and urban areas that regenerate the environment and feed the local people within the traditions of their culture.
The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors on the basis of their leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment. The Udall scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on Native American self-governance, health care, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources. Scholarships may be awarded in either Tribal Public Policy, Native Healthcare, or Environment. The Udall scholarship provides up to $7,000 for eligible academic expenses.
The Udall scholarship requires institutional nomination and an endorsement letter. Please contact LeAnn Adam to discuss your interest in applying.

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.
