    • General artistic creativity
    • Acting ability
    • Desire to be a performer
    • Number of student theatre, film, and/or television performances, with quality of performance more important than level of the role
    • Commitment to becoming a stage or film actor

    Mark Lukac had a zest for and a love of life, an incomparable sense of humor, along with a love of people and a desire to be of help to them. With these traits in addition to the above, the total should be taken as usually strong qualifications. Financial need of an applicant will be considered only if two or more candidates for the scholarship have seemingly equal qualifications, in which case financial need will be considered as an additional positive factor.
