Taco Bell Giving Out $4 Million in College Scholarships
As you drive thru your favorite Central New York location of Taco Bell on Oriskany Boulevard or North Genesee Street in the Mohawk Valley or on Erie Boulevard or Route 11 in the Syracuse area, don't just think about burritos. Think money.
For the fourth year in a row, Taco Bell is awarding college scholarships to kids who might not qualify for other traditional cash. The grants range from $5,000 to $25,000. This year, $4 million is up for grabs—a million more than last year. And the requirements are pretty easy.
All students need to do is create a two-minute video describing what they're passionate about—no GPAs, test scores, or grades are required. Anyone 16 to 24 can enter.
The application is open through February 21, 2019, and winners will be announced in the spring. Beyond 2019, Taco Bell is going even bigger. The fast food giant plans to meet an original goal of awarding $10 million in scholarships by 2022.
Here's all the information you need regarding the Live Más Scholarship program. You quiero Taco Bell, indeed.
