External Fellowships and Scholarships

The Haas Center provides advising and support for students applying to a number of external public service fellowships and scholarships.

Udall Scholarship

The Udall Scholarship is a scholarship opportunity geared towards sophomores and juniors who intend to become leaders across a wide spectrum of environmental fields, including policy, engineering, science, education, urban planning and renewal, business, health, justice, and economics. The Foundation also seeks future Native American and Alaskan Native leaders interested in addressing public and community health care, tribal government, and public policy issues that affect Native American communities, including land and resource management, economic development, and education.

Donald A. Strauss Scholarship

The Donald A. Strauss Public Service Scholarship Foundation was created as a memorial to the late Don Strauss, who demonstrated a strong, lifelong commitment to public service and education. The Foundation annually awards $15,000 to no fewer than 14 California college sophomores or juniors who have reflected a similar commitment.

Truman Scholarship

The Truman Scholarship seeks juniors with exceptional leadership potential who are committed to careers in government, the nonprofit or advocacy sectors, education, or elsewhere in the public service. The scholarship supports graduate or professional study, leadership training, and fellowship with other scholars who are committed to making a difference through public service.

Newman Civic Fellowship

The Haas Center puts out a call each fall to the Stanford community to help identify a nominee for the Newman Civic Fellowship, a national student recognition awarded by the Campus Compact. The award is given annually to one Stanford student who is outstanding in their commitment to social change and civic engagement.
