The Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation ("Udall Foundation") was established by the U.S. Congress in 1992 as an independent executive branch agency to honor Morris K. Udall's lasting impact on this Nation's environment, public lands, and natural resources, and his support of the rights and self-governance of Native Americans and Alaska Natives. In 2009, Congress enacted legislation to honor Stewart L. Udall and add his name to the Udall Foundation. The Udall Foundation awards scholarships, fellowships, and internships for study in fields related to the environment and Tribal health care and public policy; provides assessment, mediation, training, and related services through the John S. McCain III National Center for Environmental Conflict Resolution; and partners with the University of Arizona to fund the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy and the Native Nations Institute. The Udall Foundation is headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, with an additional office in Washington, D.C., and its operations and policies are overseen by a Board of Trustees.
