Lorna Sundberg Scholarship

   This $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.

Xichuan (Roger) Zhang, a rising 4th-year international student from China, was awarded the 2017 scholarship. Zhang, a commerce major in the McIntire School of Commerce and a statistics major in the College, has demonstrated leadership and contributed to the UVA community through the Chinese Students and Scholars Society, and to his home country through programs for Chinese high school students. 

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. Applications due March 16, 2018. Email intlctr@virginia.edu with any questions.
