“`Last fall, USC created a foundation in Lucas’ name to contribute to students from underrepresented communities,  who might qualify for financial support. This was funded with an initial $10 million gift from the George Lucas Family Foundation.  In 2006, Lucasfilm Foundation donated $175 million to expand and renovate structures at the school.

“`Michael Renov, Vice Dean of Academy Affairs, noted the gift will help USC recruit minority storytellers that lack a platform in cinematic media, and whose collective voice could benefit audiences all over the world.

“`The donation is available to graduate and undergraduate students.
