To help bright students that are denied education due to financial setbacks and give them recognition and motivation by awarding them scholarships to pursue their dreams of careers, Denny’s Hungry for Education has started a Scholarship Program for the academic year 2022-2023.
The scholarship programme was started by Denny’s Hungry for Education organization in collaboration with The Tom Joyner Foundation, NGLCC, Partner for Youth with Disabilities, HACU, USPAACC, Black Men of Upstate SC, Inc., National urban leagues, AAA, and Step up for Students. Students who are U.S citizens are eligible to participate in this scholarship program. A maximum of $10,000 can be won.
Denny’s Hungry for Education is an effort to help fight childhood hunger and promote education. The mission of the program is to recognize students by awarding them with scholarships for their ideas to help Denny’s bring communities together. Denny’s identifies strategic partners to award scholarships to students that submit essays on how Denny’s can help bring communities together, and one student is selected by Denny’s to have their idea be put into action in their community.
