Michigan State University has nominated four undergraduate students for the nationally competitive Udall Scholarship. One is a College of Agriculture and Natural Resources student.

The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment. Each year, the foundation awards up to $7,000 for educational expenses to 60 outstanding students in the United States.

MSU’s nominees include: Ashley Archer, an Honors College sophomore majoring in fisheries and wildlife in Lyman Briggs College; Eamon Devlin, an Honors College junior majoring in environmental studies and sustainability and fisheries and wildlife in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources; Hannah MacDonald, an Honors College sophomore majoring in environmental geosciences in the College of Natural Science; and Alec Manaia, a junior majoring in sociology in the College of Social Science.

MSU has produced 11 Udall Scholars.

“Each of our Udall Scholarship nominees have a particular interest in protecting our natural resources and promoting sustainability,” said Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore, dean of the MSU Honors College. “MSU is proud to have students who are committed to making such a positive impact on the world.”

The National and International Fellowships and Scholarships Office, administered by the Honors College, helps interested undergraduate and graduate students to pursue major national and international opportunities by providing information and direct support throughout the competitive application processes.
