Lu Lingzi Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Lu Lingzi Memorial Scholarship Fund will endow two scholarships for graduate students, according to the Office of the Provost; one will be awarded annually beginning Fall 2014. Each will provide an annual stipend and full tuition for up to two years.  The scholarship was given in memory of Lu Lingzi (GRS ’13) who was killed in the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013.  According to Lu’s family, the “scholarship is a fitting way to honor someone who dreamed of studying in the United States by providing financial support to those who share Lingzi’s dreams and ambitions.”


International students enrolled in a full-time master’s degree program will be eligible, with preference given to those from China. The dean of each school or college may nominate one student for consideration each year. Selection will be based on the student’s academic achievements and potential for success. Nominations must be submitted to the associate provost for graduate affairs by March 1 of each year.
