Charlotte Basch '14 receives competitive Udall scholarship

Basch '14 is one of 80 recipients nationwide. She also is the star of a recent Boxer Tale video and featured on the cover of the Spring 2012 issue of Pacific magazine.

Charlotte Basch ’14 has been named a 2012 Udall Scholar, one of just 80 students nationwide to receive the honor. 

Basch is a sophomore at Pacific University and is pursuing studies in anthropology and sociology. She also plans to add a minor in indigenous studies when that program becomes available in Fall 2012, a result of her work with faculty members and University leadership. She also is interested in political science, Spanish and dance.

The Udall Scholarship recognizes students on the basis of commitment to careers in the environment, healthcare or tribal public policy; leadership potential; and academic achievement. Each scholarship provides up to $5,000 for the scholar’s junior or senior year of college. Scholars also are invited to Tucson, Ariz., for a week in August to receive their awards and meet policymakers and community leaders in environmental fields, tribal healthcare and governance.

Basch recently starred in a Boxer Tale video about her experiences at Pacific University, and she will be featured on the cover of the Spring 2012 issue of Pacific magazine, debuting next week, as she shares the story of her efforts to revitalize the culture of the Clatsop-Nehalem Tribe.
