BU Scholarship Honoring LU Lingzi

Lu Lingzu

 

Boston University has established a scholarship to honor LU Lingzi, the graduate student who was killed by the bombings at the Marathon on Monday.

Seven members of the committee of the Campaign for BU already contributed $ 560,000 to the fund according to BU Today. The LU family will be traveling from Shenyang, China to Boston this week.

LU’s death has led to an outpouring from friends, family and concerned neighbors in China. LU’s Sina Weibo page already has 20,000 comments from shocked and upset friends (Sina Weibo is a Chinese social media service that combines Twitter- and Facebook-like features).  

A memorial service for LU Lingzi will be held on Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m. in the George Sherman Union Metcalf Ballroom. This will be open to the public, but seating is limited to first come, first serve.
