MORRIS K. UDALL SCHOLARSHIPS
UMD students in fields relating to the environment,
and Native American and Alaskan Native students in fields related to health
care or tribal public policy, are invited to apply for Morris K. Udall

way, the scholarship is offered to students from a broad range of disciplines.
Majors include: environmental engineering, agriculture, biology and other
natural sciences, natural resource management, political science, sociology,
anthropology, geography, cultural studies, history, public policy, and
pre-law. To be considered, students must be nominated by their institution.
The UMD Institutional deadline for receipt of completed applications is
at 4:30 p.m. February 24, 2005 in BohH 209. The scholarships, which are
to be used for the 2005-2006 academic year, will be awarded in April.
