Student Success and The Office of Prestigious Awards congratulate Sofia Aviles and Natalie Triana on receiving the Udall Scholarship. They are the first University of Florida students to earn this award since 2011, both doing so in the more competitive “Environment” category. Their accomplishment also marks the first time the university has produced more than a single Udall Scholar in the same year. 

The Udall Foundation’s Undergraduate Scholarship Program is highly competitive. After a considerable application process, 55 students nationwide are awarded the scholarship. These students are committed to public service through Tribal policy, Native health care, and environmental conservation
