TOM JOYNER FOUNDATION, DENNY’S PARTNER FOR HUNGRY FOR EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

TOM JOYNER FOUNDATION, DENNY’S PARTNER FOR  HUNGRY FOR EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Posted By: Neil Foote on October 17, 2014

The Tom Joyner Foundation and Denny’s Corporation (NASDAQ: DENN), franchisor and operator of one of America's largest full-service restaurant chains, have partnered for the third year for the Hungry For Education (HFE) scholarship program for students attending selected Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

As part of the partnership, twelve (12) deserving students from designated HBCUs will receive a $2,500 scholarship from Denny’s and the Tom Joyner Foundation. The program starts October 15 and ends December 1, 2014. Full-time students at any fully certified HBCU can apply for the scholarship. Students must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 to 4.0. To be eligible to get a summer internship at Denny’s working on projects involving HBCUs, the 12 finalists will submit up to a 90-second video describing his or her project

To apply, students must submit a 250- to 500-word essay on the topic, “Describe your most memorable community service or activity to combat hunger.” To complete the process, students go to TomJoynerFoundation.org or BlackAmericaWeb.com and click on the banner to complete the online application.

This scholarship program, launched in 2013 by John Miller, Denny’s president and CEO , is part of the company’s “No Kid Hungry” Campaign, which is setting out to reduce the number of children who have access to regular meals. Statistics show 1 in 5 children in this country go hungry.



Denny’s is recognizing high school and college students for their efforts to come up with solutions to eliminate child hunger.

The Foundation will be reviewing applications and winners will be announced in December 2014.
