merit to sophomore and junior level college students who have demonstrated
commitment to careers related to the environment. Udall Scholars take part
in a four-day Orientation in Tucson, Arizona where they meet with other
Scholars, elected officials and environmental leaders. Scholars also gain

science, natural resource management, sociology, anthropology, American
Indian studies, tribal public policy, history, English, theater, landscape
