The campus is currently looking to nominate sophomores and juniors who are taking action to address environmental concerns for the prestigious Udall Scholarship. The Udall awards $7,000 to sophomores or juniors committed to a career related to the environment. Students must be US citizens, US nationals, or US permanent residents. A successful applicant will have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and demonstrate leadership and a commitment to service. The University of Illinois may nominate up to six students for the Udall Scholarship. The campus deadline is February 7, 2019 to be considered. On Friday Nov. 9 between 3:00-4:00 we are hosting a workshop on how to craft a Udall Application.
Please note that there are special awards also for Native American students interested in tribal policy or health care (no need to be related to the environment).*
