Are you a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity? Are you studying film at UCLA and dreaming about the silver screen? If so, you can apply for the Francis D. Lyon Scholarship. This scholarship was founded by Brother “Pete” Lyon, who graduated from UCLA back in 1928. He went on to become an Academy Award winning film editor, producer and writer. He received an Oscar for his work on the 1947 film “Body and Soul.” Francis D. Lyon stayed involved with UCLA over the years, and was a Founding Father of the California Gamma Chapter at UCLA. If you dream of following in Francis D. Lyon’s footsteps and embarking on an exciting career in film, applying for scholarships like this one can really help you out along the way.
Francis D. Lyon Scholarships for film students are currently worth $2,500. Only members of the Phi Delta Theta Fraternity can apply for them, which restricts the candidate pool substantially, giving you a really good chance if you are eligible. You must be a film student, and must plan to remain one for the upcoming academic year. The deadline to complete your application for the Francis D. Lyon Scholarship is March 15th.
