The Taco Bell Foundation announced the opening of its seventh annual Live Más Scholarship application period, offering up to $7 million in scholarships to ambitious students across the country, including more than $2 million specifically for Taco Bell team members.
Applicants are encouraged to submit application videos that show how their pursuit of higher education will empower them to make a meaningful impact. Students ages 16-26 are encouraged to apply for the passion-based scholarship. The application is non-traditional and only requires a two-minute video describing your passion, a positive change you want to make in the world, and how your education will help you achieve that goal. The scholarship does not require students to submit grades, essays, or test scores, and the funds apply to multiple education paths, including community colleges and trade schools.
The application period will close on January 11, 2022, and recipients will be announced in Spring 2022. The awards are $5,000, $10,000 or $25,000 per student. The Taco Bell Foundation will award over $2 million to Taco Bell team members who have been a part of the Taco Bell family for at least 30 continuous days. The previous 90-day employment requirement was reduced to 30 to encourage scholarship applications among team members and incentivize prospective job candidates. In addition to the scholarships reserved for team members, the Taco Bell Foundation will offer up to $5 million in new and renewal scholarships for students nationwide.
