Carl Diethelm ’17 is one of just 60 students nationwide named the winner of a coveted Udall undergraduate scholarship. Carl was chosen from 482 candidates at 227 colleges and universities; he will receive a $7,000 grant. The Udall scholarship is offered to college sophomores and juniors who demonstrate exceptional leadership and action on environmental justice issues, Native American health care and tribal public policy. Carl will meet other scholars at the University of Arizona in Tucson during a four-day conference over the summer. He’ll work with other scholars on a case study of a current national issue, and build community within the scholar network. Carl received the award for his commitment to issues of food surplus and food insecurity. He joins an illustrious list of GMC students who have recently won Udall scholarships, including Rob Dunn ’16, Nicole Harmon ’16, Luz Guel ’15 and Nicholas Ravotti ’13. The Udall scholarship honors the legacies of Morris Udall and Stewart Udall of Arizona. Carl is happy to discuss the possibility and process of becoming a Udall scholar with any interested students.
