Carly Dean (B.Arch. '14) has received honorable mention in the annual Udall scholarship competition. Dean is a leader of Schoolhouse South Africa, a student-led project of Cornell University Sustainable Design (CUSD) that designed and constructed the first formal preschool for a development in Gauteng, South Africa. She is a student editor for the Cornell Journal of Architecture and a contributor to the Cornell Daily Sun, a teaching assistant in the Rand Hall Fabrication Lab, and a student manager at the Carol Tatkon Center. The scholarship provides tuition for undergraduates intending to pursue careers related to the environment, and to American Indian undergraduates pursuing careers in health care or tribal public policy.
This scholarship is sponsored by the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation, an independent federal agency established by Congress to honor Arizona Congressman Morris K. Udall and his brother Stewart L. Udall, Secretary of the Interior under the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. This year, 80 students from 70 colleges and universities were named Udall Scholars on the basis of their leadership, service, academic achievement, and commitment. Christopher (Kit) Dobyns '13, Arts and Sciences, also won a scholarship.
