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.

The ESU-SF Post Graduate Studies Scholarship awards several $20,000 scholarships to Bay Area college graduates for post-graduate study at British Universities. In recent years, students have pursued their studies at Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics, and University of York.
Two recent Columbia alumni, Colin Felsman, CC'09, and Shira Milikowsky, School of Arts '07, have won the Luce Scholarship. This is the first time in over five years that Columbia has had two scholars in the same year. The Luce Foundation describes the program as being “aimed at a group of highly qualified young Americans in a variety of professional fields. It is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had limited experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia. The Program provides stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young Americans each year.” While the award varies depending on placement, it can provide approximately $30,000 for the year.
