Apply Today—Live Más Scholarship Opportunity


Are you a student who would like to pursue a passion and make a change in your community or in the world? Then you might want to apply for the Live Más Scholarship opportunity!

Every year, Taco Bell Foundation proudly awards millions of dollars in scholarship funds to young Taco Bell employees pursuing higher education. In 2021, the Foundation awarded seven Border Foods team members with Live Más scholarships, totaling $60,000! Learn more about these exceptional individuals on the blog.

Live Más scholarship applications are now being accepted through mid-January. Scholarship funds are awarded for qualified education expenses, including tuition, required fees, books and course-specific supplies. To be eligible, you must be a current employee of Taco Bell, between the ages of 16 to 26, with a minimum of three months continuous employment. Past scholarship recipients can also apply for renewal funds.


How to Apply

To apply, submit a video, between 30 seconds and two minutes, addressing:

  • What is your passion and how are you currently pursuing it?
  • How do you plan to use your passion to uniquely make a positive change in your community or the world?
  • How will your education help enable you to pursue your passion and make a change?

Additional Scholarship Opportunities

Border Foods’ employees have the opportunity to apply for additional scholarship programs. Border Foods hosts its own scholarship program through the Engler Family Foundation, most recently awarding $20,000 to team members across the country. You can read about the 2021 winners on the blog. And in honor of the company’s longstanding VP of Operations, Carol Williams (who passed away in 2018), employees may also apply for her namesake scholarship. Applications for the Border Foods and Carol Williams Scholarship Programs open in January each year.
