Phillip Lucero Memorial Endowed Scholarship

The Fund is established to provide scholarships to deserving Technical Communication, Technical Writing and Editing, Video Production, and Media Production and Leadership majors at the University.

This Endowment was previously named the ‘Technical Communication Endowed Scholarship’ and was under the leadership of former faculty member and department chair James Steele. It was created to provide scholarships to deserving Technical Communication and Media Production majors at the University. In 2015, the Fund was re-named to honor the life of former MSU Denver Alumnus, Phillip Lucero. Mr. Lucero launched two successful video production companies in Denver: Phil Lucero Productions and Transmission Studio, before his untimely death in 2014.
