Shelly R. Strickland, a junior majoring in biological and biomedical engineering, has been named a recipient of the Morris K. Udall Scholarship. Strickland of Maxton was one of three North Carolina residents and 80 students nationally to receive the award. Another student of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences — Kirsten Collings from Cullowhee, a senior majoring in resources and ecosystem assessment — was named an Honorable Mention Scholarship recipient. Both honorees receive cash awards.

Morris K. Udall Scholarships are awarded to undergraduates pursuing careers related to the environment, as well as to Native American and Alaska native students who intend to pursue careers in health care and tribal public policy. The Udall program, which is committed to educating Americans to preserve and protect their national heritage, has awarded scholarships annually since 1992.

Each scholar receives up to $5,000, or the cost of tuition, fees, books, room and board.
