Hannah Perls, CC'11, and Todd Nelson, CC'12, have won the Udall Scholarship. This is the first time that Columbia has ever had two winners in the same year. The Udall Scholarship is the most prestigious award that can be given to an undergraduate in the field of Environmental Science. Named in honor of Congressman Morris Udall, the award recognizes those students who have shown deep commitment - through their scholarship and activism - to protecting the environment and who plan to become leaders in their chosen field. The scholarship provides a grant of $5000 as well as the opportunity to attend a symposium in August that will allow them to meet and network with elected federal officials and leaders in environmental protection, public policy, and Native American and Tribal Affairs.
