SFTV Hosts Scholarship “Breakfast with the Dean”

17Twenty-six SFTV undergraduate and graduate students were awarded scholarships for the 2015-2016 academic year. Awards are based on merit and faculty recommendations.

At a recent scholarship breakfast hosted by SFTV Dean Stephen Ujlaki, he congratulated the students, saying, “We are extremely appreciative to our generous donors who make it possible for all of you to study at LMU.”

During the event, the students had a chance to mingle with fellow SFTV students, faculty and staff and speak about how their scholarships have impacted their education and work. “This scholarship has allowed me to pursue my passion with sound and music,” said Recording Arts freshman Ryan Hartnett. Second-year Production M.F.A. student Zoë Smurr shared how the scholarship enabled her to make a short documentary about her family’s journey navigating her father’s Alzheimer’s disease. “It is important to me to be able to share the effects Alzheimer’s has on family and marriage, and the scholarship made that possible for me.”

Congratulations to all the recipients!
