George Lucas Donates An Additional $10 Million To USC

(RADIO ALICE) – On Monday, Star Wars creator George Lucas has given his old alma mater, the University of Southern California an additional $10 million to help students in the diversity program at the School of Cinematic Arts. A program the 72 year-old filmmaker helped establish.

USC established the foundation in Lucas’ name to help those students from underrepresented communities who can get financial aid. The George Lucas Family Foundation funded the initial $10 million gift.

The Vice Dean of Academy Affairs, Michael Renov said Lucas’ donation will help USC “recruit storytellers whose voices are underrepresented in cinematic media and whose inclusion benefits all of us.”
