"Alexander Mallory is a Junior Political Science and History Major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Watching his grandfather, Kenneth Mallory, a former tribal councilman, advocate for the betterment of the Winnebago tribe has played a pivotal role in inspiring Alexander to pursue a career in public service. This previous summer, he had the opportunity to serve as a legislative intern for Senator Deb Fischer of Nebraska in Washington D.C. Alex is currently employed as a legislative page at the Nebraska Unicameral Legislature where he works on the Judiciary Committee under Chairman Brad Ashford. This summer, he intends to participate in the Native American Political Leadership Program at George Washington University in Washington D.C. After graduating, he hopes to pursue a Juris Doctorate at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and study Native American law.”

"The Morris K. Udall Scholarship is a highly competitive award and is regarded by most universities as one of the several prestigious scholarships. The Foundation awards 50 scholarships of $5,000 and 50 honorable mentions annually on the basis of merit to sophomore and junior-level college students who have demonstrated commitment to careers related to the environment, tribal public policy or health care. Alexander is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's first-ever Udall Scholar. He chose to apply for the Udall Scholarship because of his deep interest in public policy. He will attend a four-day Udall Scholar Orientation week in Tucson, Arizona to meet with other Scholars, elected officials, environmental and tribal leaders. It will be held August 5-10, 2014." 

"If I could give one piece of advice to fellow WHT Scholars it would be to seize all the endless opportunities offered to us as undergraduate students."
