Taco Bell Foundation Awards $8 Million in Live Más Scholarships to Empower Young People to Pursue Their Passions


"I know firsthand what it's like to be a young person with a dream to break convention and change an industry," Lil Nas X says in a press release announcing this year's class of "Live M's Scholars."

The cultural icon is the chief impact officer for the Taco Bell Foundation, which awarded $8 million in scholarships to 772 students, aged 16-26, who submitted a two-minute video describing their passion, a positive change they want to make in the world, and how their education will help them achieve that goal.

The students, who were chosen from a pool of 8,000 applicants, include nearly 200 fans of the brand, 150 Taco Bell Restaurant team members, and 430 renewal winners (both fans and team members who applied to renew a Live M's Scholarship they received in the past).

This year's scholars will also have the opportunity to attend the Live M's Scholarship Summer of Creativity, an in-person conference in San Diego.

"We are so excited to welcome a new, ambitious class of scholars," Jennifer Bradbury, the Taco Bell Foundation's executive director, says in the press release.
