PURCHASE, N.Y. — PepsiCo has donated $50,000 to the National Association of Hispanic Journalists that will be used for scholarships and internships to support Latino students pursuing careers in communications, journalism and social media.
The food and beverage company's contribution to the NAHJ will benefit a total of 15 Hispanic students with scholarship and internship opportunities.
The donation was announced at the NAHJ's Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla., on Thursday, where PepsiCo serves as the exclusive sponsor of NAHJ's Newsmaker Luncheon, a landmark conference event for the organization.
PepsiCo's support of NAHJ is part of its La Promesa de PepsiCo program, which focuses specifically on Latino empowerment and the issues that matter most to Hispanics, including Latino education, employment opportunities, promoting active lifestyles and investing in science to develop healthier products, PepsiCo said.
