Graduate Fellowship For Film Students

Francis D. “Pete” Lyon, UCLA ’28, was a distinguished director, producer and editor of motion pictures and television. He won 1947’s Academy Award for Best Film Editing for Body and Soul. Brother Lyon’s graduate fellowship is awarded to students of film making.

Recipients must be graduate students. They may be Phis or non-Phis, men, or women. They must, however, share his passion for making films, and they must show evidence of talent.

In 1995, Brother Lyon received Phi Delta Theta’s Distinguished Alumnus Award. He passed away in October of 1996 just a few weeks after he had established the scholarship.
