The Dick Lucas Memorial Scholarship was established by Scott Equipment Company in 2016 to honor Dick Lucas’ life as an entrepreneur, engineer, businessman, and lifelong scholar.

Scott Equipment Company has awarded scholarships to local students who have demonstrated strong academic and leadership skills, community involvement, and plans to major in Engineering. 

About Dick Lucas

Richard “Dick” Lucas, Jr., was born July 1, 1926.  He grew up in South Minneapolis and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1944. 

After high school, Dick proudly served in the United States Marines Corp and following his honorable discharge in 1946, attended Augsburg College to study business and accounting.

One of Dick’s biggest passions was his work, founding Scott Equipment Company in 1966.  The company started as a small business in an old blacksmith shop in Jordan and then moved to a larger manufacturing facility in New Prague in 1974. 

Dick was a hard-working man and it was his determination and vision that has made Scott Equipment the world leader and global provider of custom industrial processing equipment that it is today.

What our recipients have to say

The recipients of our scholarship have expressed their appreciation for these awards, and here is what they are saying:

I am currently working in the Twin Cities as a Financial Advisor and trying to grow my business. I really enjoy what I do and am so thankful for the scholarship. The Dick Lucas Memorial Scholarship relieved me of some stress and financial burden so that I could focus more on school and preparing myself for post-graduation.  I really appreciate the Scholarship and pass along my gratitude to the entire Scott team. It means a lot to me!

Ryan Johnson

Financial Advisor

After HS, I attended Saint Cloud State University for Mechanical Engineering. I graduated in May 2020 with my BS degree and worked at HydroEngineering for a year as a Product R&D Engineer. I am currently a student at George Washington University in Washington D.C., working towards my Biomedical Engineering  Master’s Degree. Going to school with less debt is something I can thank Scott Equipment Company, as it has made quite a difference.
