Foundation, Denny’s Launch the 2018 “Hungry for Education” Scholarship Program

Denny’s and the Tom Joyner Foundation are partnering to encourage students currently enrolled at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to submit an idea for a “Community Hunger Program” to combat childhood hunger in their HBCU communities. Students must be able to complete the program during the upcoming school year. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must complete the following form describing their program. Nine deserving students from designated HBCUs have a chance to receive a $2,000 scholarship from Denny’s and the Tom Joyner Foundation. In addition to the scholarship, one program will receive $2,000 to launch the program.
