 $25,000, $10,000, and $5,000 Taco Bell Live Mas Scholarship, D: Jan. 23, 2020

The deadline for this scholarship is Thursday, so if you qualify, make 2-3 videos with your phone or tablet, answer the questions below, choose which one is the best (if you need to reduce the size of your video, google reduce the size of my video file or something similar), and then upload the video.

Create a 2 minute or less about your passion and you might earn this scholarship

Selected criteria from website:

Ages 16-24, legal resident of the U.S., no third-party infringement (read the rules to understand)

“Submit a video that addresses these questions:

  • What post-secondary education program, college or certificate/degree program are you attending?
  • What impact will following your passion have on your local community or the world?
  • How do you plan to achieve your passion through your educational goals?
  • What is your dream college, school or next step in your education?


Your submission video must be between 30 seconds and 2 minutes in length. Think about filming this video on your phone, computer, tablet, school or library’s computer lab, or any other MP4 video-enabled camera to which you have access. It could be a short film, animation, or a simple testimonial. This isn’t about how well you can make a film—we want to learn more about you and your passion.”

I found the scholarship in the article above, “Experts Reveal 19 Best Places to Find Free Money for College” by Christy Rakoczy.

There are many more scholarship possibilities found within this article.


SKIP THE ADS! (Some of the ads are legitimate, but sadly I can’t vouch for them all. Avoid the single mom or single dad scholarships–I and a few other students have received calls, and some of the operators are not scrupulous, trying to pressure students in pursuing degrees at for-profit colleges and to take on heavy student loans.)


Benefits.gov–Looking for Scholarships, Internships, and other Government Programs


Benefits.gov is the portal for information about government benefits, which incorporates state information.

Students, and also parents, can choose to answer questions in the Benefit Finder tool and find benefits, including scholarships, internships, and government programs, they can apply for.

Also, under Benefits, you can choose “Browse Benefits” to explore benefits by category without using the Benefits Finder tool.
