Udall Center Fellows are relieved of their teaching duties for a full semester during the academic year so they can focus their attention on research that studies, examines or has the potential to impact some area of public policy.
Now in its 35th year, the Udall Center Fellows Program has hosted 173 UArizona faculty members throughout the life of the program. These scholars represent a diverse cross section of academic fields at UArizona and include members of 49 schools, departments and centers in 12 colleges. The research areas of those selected to participate have varied greatly and include filmmaking, geography, sociology, law, public health, mathematics, ecology, hydrology and more.
Though four of the five available tracks call for submissions in specific fields of study – namely bioscience, the environment*, fine art and social science – the “Other Public Policy Research” track opens the door to research projects in just about any academic field imaginable.
This year, in partnership with multiple colleges and institutions across the UArizona campus, the Udall Center offers the following five* specialized tracks tailored to an array of potential public policy interests:
- Biosciences and Public Policy, in partnership with the BIO5 Institute
- Environment and Public Policy*, in partnership with the Arizona Institute for Resilience (AIR)
- Fine Arts and Public Policy, in partnership with the College of Fine Arts
- Social Sciences and Public Policy, in partnership with the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences
- Other Public Policy Research, in partnership with the Office of Research, Innovation and Impact (RII)
Applications for the 2024-25 Fellowship Program are due January 30, 2024.

*Confirmation on the Environment and Public Policy track sponsored by AIR is currently pending. If confirmed, limitations on available funding will require that the Environment and Public Policy research track for 2024-25 provide financial support for research that takes place during the summer of 2024 rather than during the spring or fall semester.
