Domino's Pizza is now offering more than $44,000 in scholarships for full-time students who are enrolled at any of the 37 Historically Black Colleges and Universities that are United Negro College Fund (UNCF) member institutions. The application window for the new UNCF Domino's Pizza Scholarship is open now through January 12, 2021.
Domino's established the scholarship as part of a commitment the company made in June 2020 after denouncing all acts of racism, hatred and the unjust treatment of Black people. Domino's promised to seek meaningful partnerships and back words with actions through new internal programs and contributions to nonprofit organizations.
"Domino's is thrilled to invite students at any UNCF member institution to apply for the new UNCF Domino's Pizza Scholarship," says Ritch Allison, Domino's chief executive officer. "Supporting Black youth who are pursuing higher education is a priority in our effort to support the Black community and make opportunity more accessible."
Domino's will award at least 10 scholarships of up to $4,400 each to students in 2021. Eligible students must hold a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale, complete a FAFSA form and be studying full-time.
To apply, visit the UNCF Domino's Pizza Scholarship page at uncf.org. Students must submit an online application with a letter of recommendation, a one-page personal statement of career interest and their current transcript. All materials must be received by the Jan. 12, 2021, deadline.
