How to apply...
Applicants must include a completed Internship Application Form and provide three references, one from a leader in his/her tribe, one from a faculty member in the applicant's field of study, and another individual that can attest to the applicant's potential, and a resume. The application packet must be returned by February 3.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
An independent contractor, with the approval of the Morris K. Udall Foundation, will select four or five Native Americans from the academic community to serve as the Udall Review Committee. The Udall Foundation will initially verify the contents of the applications packets for completeness and then assemble the information for review by the committee. Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of: (1) Outstanding leadership capabilities, (2) academic excellence, and (3) dedication to the values exemplified by Morris K. Udall during his career, i.e., civility, integrity and consensus. The Review Committee has sole discretion in the selection of the interns.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
