Baylor Student Receives Morris K. Udall Scholarship

Aug. 27, 1997

Baylor University senior Cinnamon Gilbreath, a university scholar major from Waco, has been named a 1997 Morris K. Udall Scholar.

The Udall Scholars came from a field of 350 students who were nominated by the faculties of colleges and universities nationwide. The scholars, who plan to pursue careers in environmental public policy, health care or tribal public policy, are selected on the basis of academic merit.

The one-year scholarship will be used toward the cost of tuition, fees, books and room and board up to a maximum of $5,000 per year.

The Morris K. Udall Scholarship was established in 1992 to honor former Arizona Congressman Morris K. Udall and his legacy of public service. The Udall Foundation operates an educational scholarship program designed to provide opportunities for outstanding U.S. students with excellent academic records and demonstrated interest in, and potential for, careers in the fields of environmental public policy, health care and tribal public policy.

Since the Udall Foundation began operation in Tucson, Ariz., in May of 1995, 125 scholars have been named.
