(AP) -- A suburban Boston community college has established a scholarship in memory of a marathon bombing victim.

MassBay Community College announced Wednesday that the scholarship would go to a business major from Massachusetts in honor of Krystle Campbell.

The 29-year-old earned a degree in business administration from the Wellesley school in 2005.

The Medford native and Arlington resident was one of three people killed by the April 15 bombings at the marathon's finish line. She was there to watch a friend run.

Candidates must be carrying a full course load, and must submit an essay about resiliency, making a difference, generosity of spirit, or overcoming obstacles to achieve a goal.

President John O'Donnell says the school "lost one of our own on that horrific day."
