The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment. The Udall Scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall, whose distinguished political and service careers had a significant impact on American Indian self-governance, healthcare, and the stewardship of public lands and natural resources.
Tyler J. Hall, E’17, mechanical engineering major
Tyler has maximized Northeastern’s unique blend of classroom and experiential learning to dial into a specific area where he can make a critical difference: mechanical engineering with a focus on renewable energies. He spent two semesters as a researcher in the university’s Sustainability and Data Sciences Lab and has completed two energy-focused co-ops; he’s currently finishing his third at Tesla Motors. For three years, he has been involved with Engineers Without Borders-USA, an organization he believes is emblematic of the positive impact that thoughtfully applied engineering can have on communities and the environment.
