Udall Foundation Scholars

The US Congress established the Udall Foundation as an independent executive branch agency in 1992 to honor Morris K. Udall’s 30 years of service in the US House of Representatives. In 2009 Congress enacted legislation to honor Stewart L. Udall and to add his name to the foundation. It is now known as the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation. Its purposes, as set forth in the founding legislation, focus on environmental issues and natural resources, as well as on special programs for Native Americans. Annually since 1996, the foundation has awarded scholarships of up to $5,000 in a national competition to students who have demonstrated commitment to careers related to the environment. In 2004 Troy A. Perkins and Paul E. Julian were the first UT students named scholars. John R. Evans, who had been named a 2003 Udall Scholar while studying in community college, attended UT in 2004. Paul E. Julian was enrolled in Oxford University when named a 2004 scholar and returned to UT as a Udall Scholar in 2005. Samuel E. Jordan was named a scholar in 2009, and Brian A. Conlon was named a scholar in 2013.
