UMass Boston mourns the tragic loss of Krystle Campbell who was killed senselessly in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. The university honored Krystle’s memory through its award of a posthumous degree to the former student in 2013 and the establishment of a scholarship in her name. The scholarship was set up by University of Massachusetts Trustee Richard P. Campbell, J.D. (no relation).
The Krystle Campbell Scholarship will support scholarships that advance young women, like Krystle Campbell, interested in pursuing careers in business.
One Award of $5,000 will be made to a student who meets the criteria below:
- Full-time Undergraduate Student
- Female Student in the College of Management
- Must have a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA
- Must have an interest in pursuing a career in business

To apply students must first complete a general application at https://umb.academicworks.com/ and then also click “Apply” to The Krystle Campbell Scholarship Fund and answer the additional scholarship specific question.
The deadline for scholarship submission is Wednesday, March 11th.
This scholarship will be applied to the 2015-2016 academic year, so applicants would have to be planning on being enrolled next year.
