The fast food chain's non-profit is "focusing on serving youth and community needs." The foundation plans to give away $4 million in total this time around, with the scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $25,000.
The $4 million is divvied up amongst three groups of applicants: $1 million to new applicants, $2.25 million through a renewal program for previous recipients, and $750,000 for Taco Bell employees. The foundation plans to award $21 million in scholarships by 2021.
So how do you apply? Student's are required to submit a 2-minute video about their passion. According to the scholarship site -
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 passion and explain why you should be considered for a Live Más Scholarship.
Former Taco Bell CEO Brian Niccol told the site -
Why have scholarships gone to just academics and athletes? And it just hits you how true that is. Many people who make a real impact on the world don’t fall neatly into those two boxes.
