At United States Hispanic Leadership Institute, we know how important it is for schools across the country to identify and remove barriers that prevent students from accessing the nutrition and higher educational opportunities they need in order to learn and succeed. Currently, according to No Kid Hungry®, 22% of U.S. children under age 18 live in poverty, struggling every day with hunger that holds them back from striving to do their best in school. That’s why we have partnered with Denny’s Hungry for Education campaign, a program awarding over $200,000 in scholarships and special incentives to high school and college students for their innovative ideas on childhood hunger. For this scholarship, students will need to provide a 300-word essay (high school) or a 500-word essay (college) on how Denny’s can impact childhood hunger in their community. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident, or individuals who are lawfully authorized to work full-time without restriction for any U.S. employer and who, at the time of application, possess lawful evidence of employment authorization. Grades and academic performance will serve as indicators of potential; however, an emphasis may be placed on the individual's essay submission.
