For Scholars

From Scholar Orientation to the Udall Alumni Association to the Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus program, there are many ways for scholars and alumni to stay connected to each other and the Udall Foundation.

Scholar Orientation
The Udall Scholar Orientation takes place each August in Tucson, Arizona and brings Udall Scholars, alumni, faculty representatives, Udall family members, and Foundation staff together to network, share ideas, hear from distinguished leaders, and see, first hand, what it means to be a part of the Udall legacy. Visit our Scholar Orientation page for more information, and ways that alumni can be involved.

Scholar and Native Network Listservs
The Udall Foundation maintains two listservs: the scholar listserv is for Udall Scholar alumni and Honorable Mentions; the Native network listserv is for American Indian alumni of the Foundation’s scholarship and internship programs. Alumni use the listservs to share employment, internship, and scholarship opportunities in the areas of the environment, health care, and Native American public policy; arrange regional alumni get-togethers; and discuss "best practices" for the environment and tribal sovereignty. If you're an alumnus of the scholarship, internship or fellowship programs, and you’d like to sign up for one or both listservs, contact Jane Curlin.

Udall Alumni Association
All alumni of the scholarship, internship and fellowship programs are members of the Udall Alumni Association (UAA). The UAA sponsors biennial alumni reunions, regional networking, such as get-togethers and potlucks in cities and countries around the world, and brown-bag discussions and webinars. If you'd like to be involved with the UAA, email To stay up-to-date on alumni events and network with other Udall alumni, connect with the UAA through Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

Parks in Focus
The Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus program connects youth from underserved communities to nature through photography. Our staff work with youth organizations to provide middle-school youth with outdoor adventures, photography lessons, and environmental education through field trips to local natural areas, and on excursions to state and national parks.

Support Parks in Focus by sharing our stories on Facebook and Twitter; comment on our blog; or volunteer for one of our current program locations: Tucson, Arizona; San Francisco, California; Missoula, Montana; Newago and Flint, Michigan.
