About the Taco Bell Scholarships

Taco Bell’s Live Más Scholarship program is designed for students seeking a college degree and for those that are preparing for the workforce. The scholarship is not based on your GPA.
The goal of the Taco Bell Scholarship program is not to just write a big check to help pay for college. Rather, the Live Más Scholarship program serves as a partner to help students achieve their dreams—their passions, according to the Taco Bell Foundation.

How to Enter

To apply for the Live Más Scholarship, you will need to highlight your passion, dream or innovation via an original video. The video can be recorded on your phone, computer, table or any other MP4 video device. The type of video is up to you. For instance, it can be a short film, testimonial or animation.
Submit your two-minute video (a minimum of 30 seconds) and be sure it addresses the three question prompts below:

  1. What is your passion and how are you currently pursuing it?
  2. How do you plan to use your passion to uniquely make a positive change in your community or the world?
  3. How will your education help enable you to pursue your passion and make a change?
The goal of the video is not to see how well you can make a film; it is to introduce Taco Bell’s scholarship judges to you. The Taco Bell Foundation adds, “...we want to learn more about you, your passion, and how you plan to ignite change in your community and beyond!”
