Udall Faculty Representative Website
Update your institutional profile, register students for the online application, show your Udall scholarship campus deadline on our website, and view your institution’s nomination history on the representative website. Additional resources to assist faculty reps in recruiting and advising applicants can be found in the "Just for FacReps" section.

Become a Faculty Representative
Udall faculty representatives are essential partners in the Foundation's recruitment and selection of scholars. A Udall faculty rep advertises the Udall competition on their campus; helps to recruit and identify potential scholars; advises students on how best to prepare their applications; and ensures that applications are complete and submitted by the deadline. Udall faculty reps can also help their students to have a positive, meaningful application experience, even when the student has not been selected as a scholar.

A faculty rep's principal responsibilities are to

  • Be familiar with the scholarship criteria and with the Udall Foundation's mission;
  • Recruit applicants across campus for our three scholarship categories;
  • Register students for the online application at http://facultyreps.udall.gov;
  • Advise students on how to best present themselves in the application;
  • Submit candidates' applications and required materials to the Udall Foundation by the deadline;
  • Update contact and institutional information at http://facultyreps.udall.gov; and
  • Contact the Foundation if you have questions about the scholarship program.

To become a faculty rep

  • Visit Apply first to be sure your institution has no active faculty rep;
  • Email Kellcee Baker with your full name, school name, title and school email address; and
  • If you are replacing someone as the faculty rep, please copy him or her in your email so the Udall Foundation is aware of the transfer of responsibility.
