ABC News, October 27, 2015


The school announced Tuesday that the George Lucas Family Foundation is donating $10 million to its film school to provide financial support to black and Hispanic students.

The money will be used to establish the George Lucas Foundation Endowed Student Support Fund for Diversity.

In a statement, the “Star Wars” director said Hispanic and African-American storytellers are underrepresented in the entertainment industry.


The endowment is the largest single donation for student support in school history.
