The Taco Bell Foundation is going to award $4 million in scholarships in 2019 via their Live Más Scholarship program - and, according to CNBC
, over $21 million in college scholarships by 2021!
According to the Taco Bell Foundation website
, the Live Más Scholarship is for the “innovators, creators and dreamers,” which means it “is not based on your grades or how well you play sports.”
Through the scholarship program, they’re “looking for the next generation of innovators, creators and dreams who want to make a difference in the world.”
The website also details that the foundation will be awarding a total of $4 million broken down into three award segments: $1 million through their new applicant program, $2.25 million in renewed scholarships to previous recipients of the award and $750,000 available to Taco Bell restaurant employees.
The foundation's mission, as detail on their website, is to help young people "explore their career passions – with scholarships, experiences and community support."
The two award opportunities you can apply for through February 21, 2019
are broken down into two categories: students and student employees of the popular chain.
