Lorna Sundberg Scholarship

Lorna Sundberg Christina XuThis $1500 scholarship is offered to rising 4th-year international students at UVA who have demonstrated academic merit and commitment to community service. It honors the dedication that marked the life of Lorna Sundberg, the International Center's leader from 1981 to 1998. The 2001 summer issue of the International Newsline has many moving remembrances of Lorna Sundberg.

Boyuan Christina Xu, a rising 4th-year student from Shanghai, China, was awarded the 2018 scholarship. She is in the McIntire School of Commerce. During her time at UVA, she spearheaded the establishment of a translation team so that Cavalier Daily and UVA Today articles could be published and read on the Chinese WeChat platform. Her efforts increased the University’s reach to the international community and students' access to important information.  

Students must have F-1 status, an I-20 issued from the UVA International Studies Office, and financial need to be eligible for the scholarship. Application forms and information will be announced in January 2019. Email intlctr@virginia.edu with any questions.
