The son of Shane and Wendela Lundgren, Christopher recently completed his junior year at Sisters High School in Sisters.

He was among 60 U.S. students selected for the merit-based Davis Scholarships.

UWC is an international high school for 16- to 19-year-olds with 18 campuses worldwide whose mission is to unite cultures through education, thus creating a peaceful, sustainable world. UWC students represent up to 90 countries at some campuses; many come from conflict regions.

Applicants for Davis Scholarships must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and be either 16 or 17 years old on September 1 of the year they intend to enroll. Additional non-scholarship students may also be selected. These students will be offered partial or no financial support. December 1 is the application deadline.
