Princeton students receive Udall Scholarships to study Native American, environmental issues

April 24th, 2020

Congratulations to Jessica Lambert and Claire Wayner, sophomores in PEI’s Certificate Program in Environmental Studies, who were named 2020 Udall Undergraduate Scholars by the Udall Foundation! A citizen of the Choctaw Nation, Lambert is an anthropology major and co-president of Natives at Princeton who wants to ultimately help establish tribal laws and agencies that protect and clean up contaminated Native American land. Wayner, a civil and environmental engineering major and president of the Princeton Student Climate Initiative, is driven by the climate crisis to work in or with the federal government to develop and implement policies that decarbonize the global energy supply.

The Udall Foundation is an independent federal agency founded in honor of U.S. Rep. Morris Udall and U.S. Rep. and Secretary of the Interior Stewart Udall, whose careers had a significant impact on Native American self-governance, health care and stewardship of public lands and natural resources. Udall Scholars receive up to $7,000 and are selected based on their leadership, public service, academic excellence, and commitment to issues related to Native American nations or to the environment.
