This 50-minute webinar is a recording of a presentation by the Scholarship Program Manager and the Senior Education Program Manager at the Udall Foundation. While intended for new advisors to the Udall Scholarship, long-standing advisors may find fresh perspectives in the questions of their new colleagues.
In this workshop we will walk you through the components of the Udall Scholarship application. First, we’ll talk about what the take-home message of an application should be, and the characteristics of a strong application. Then, we’ll talk about ways students can approach the application to reveal a cohesive picture of who they are, and who they’re going to be. After that, we’ll go through each section of the application and talk about do’s and don’ts.
