These scholarships in Theatre and Film is an endowed fund which was established in memory of Mark Robert Lukac, who was a member in good standing of the MSUM Class of 1991 at the time of his sudden, accidental death on April 8, 1990. This scholarship shall be awarded to a major who is studying theatre or film on the basis of the following:
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.
Requirements: Less than 64 credits, 3.0 GPA, creativity and service to community.
