The Fellowship is an important addition to the Udall Foundation’s Education Programs, a fitting expression of the legacy of Mo Udall and John McCain and a valuable asset for all of Indian Country.”
The Native American Graduate Fellowship joins the other Education Programs administered by the Udall Foundation: the Native American Congressional Internship, the Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus® Program, and the Udall Undergraduate Scholarship.
