Campus Deadline: Dec. 1, 2020

For the campus deadline, students must submit the following:

  • Application form
  • Essay on a speech, legislative act, book, or public policy statement by either Morris or Stewart Udall and its impact on your interests and goals
  • Transcripts

A committee will review all applications submitted by the campus deadline to determine which students receive a campus nomination. As stated on the Udall Scholarship website, the University of Missouri may nominate up to “four applicants whose careers will benefit Indian country (the tribal policy and Native health care categories)” and up to four candidates “whose careers will benefit the environment.”

Candidates who receive a campus nomination will work closely with Fellowships Office staff to revise application materials prior to the final campus.
