The new scholarship for the innovators, creators and dreamers.

That’s right. The Live Más Scholarship is not based on your grades or how well you play sports. No essays, no test scores, no right or wrong answers. We want to help Taco Bell restaurant employees - whether teen or adult – pursue their unique educational dreams. The Taco Bell Foundation will be awarding 55 scholarships to deserving recipients, ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 each.

How to enter

How to enter

Create and submit a video (2 minutes or less in length) that tells us the story of your life’s passion. It could be a short film, animation or just a simple testimonial. This is not about how well you can make a film – we just want you to show us your talents and explain why you should be considered for a Live Màs Scholarship.


You don’t have to be an aspiring filmmaker – you just have to showcase your passion.


Think about filming this video on your phone, computer, tablet, your school or library’s computer lab, or on any other MP4 video enabled camera to which you have access. Your video must be 2 minutes or less to ensure it’s easy to upload onto the website.
