Udall Scholars 2014: Montana State Leads Public Universities

The year 2014 again yielded a smaller list of Udall Scholars than in the past, only 50 nationwide, versus 80 awarded in previous years.  Only two universities, public or private, had more than one Udall scholar in 2014–Green Mountain College, a private institution in Vermont, and Montana State University, which also had four Goldwater winners this year.

Udall scholarships valued at up to $5,000  are awarded to sophomore and junior level college students committed to careers related to the environment, tribal public policy, or Native American health care. Many of the awards are for environmental research.

Below are the public universities in the continental U.S. that have Udall scholars this year:

Houston, Central Florida, North Georgia, Texas A&M, Connecticut, Virginia Tech, Ball State, Minnesota-Morris, Wisconsin, Utah, Ohio, West Virginia, Nebraska, UC Berkeley, New College of Florida, Ohio State, Montana, Alabama-Birmingham, South Florida, College of Charleston, Montana, Montana State (2), New Hampshire, Purdue, S. Dakota School of Mines, and Oregon State.
