Two students, each pursuing dual degrees at Michigan State University, have been nominated for the nationally competitive Udall Scholarship.

MSU’s nominees are: charles booher and hunter stanke
  • Charles Booher, an Honors College sophomore majoring in fisheries and wildlife in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and public policy in the College of Social Science.

  • Hunter Stanke, an Honors College sophomore majoring in forestry in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and environmental geosciences in the College of Natural Science.

The Udall Foundation awards scholarships to college sophomores and juniors for leadership, public service, and commitment to issues related to American Indian nations or to the environment. Each year, the foundation awards up to $7,000 for educational expenses to 60 outstanding students in the United States.

MSU has produced 12 Udall Scholars.

The National/International Fellowships and Scholarships (NIFS) Office, administered by the Honors College, helps interested undergraduate and graduate students pursue major national and international opportunities by providing information and direct support throughout the competitive application processes.

“Charles and Hunter are both eager to engage in research and be leaders in their respective environmental fields,” said Cynthia Jackson-Elmoore, dean of the MSU Honors College. “Michigan State University is proud to recognize their efforts by nominating them for this scholarship.”
