This scholarship is provided by the Udall Foundation and awarded to college sophomores and juniors for their leadership, public service, and commitment to environmental or Native American matters.

Post-graduation, Green hopes to pursue a master’s degree in public policy so that he can work on enhancing Louisiana’s coastal sustainability.photo of jack green on a field trip with lumcon

“Sustainability problems more than often occur in communities that are also affected by socioeconomic problems. Communities like the Isle de Jean Charles and St. Joseph are facing the harshest environmental issues. I would like to bring underrepresented community leaders to the table when talking about sustainability and the people that sustainability affects,” Green said.

Green is also a student in the Ogden Honors College and a LASAL Scholar. The Louisiana Service and Leadership (LASAL) Scholars Program prepares students for leadership in public service, social justice, and environmental sustainability.

The Udall Foundation is an independent executive branch agency, established by U.S. Congress in 1992, honoring Morris K. Udall's legacy on the environment, public lands, natural resources, and his support of Native Americans and Alaska Natives.
