A new scholarship is available called Live Mas and it is supported by Taco Bell. The Live Más Scholarship is not based on your grades or how well you play sports. No essays, no test scores, no right or wrong answers. We’re looking for the next generation of innovators, creators and dreamers – whose post-high school education we will help fund. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for the next generation. In 2016 the Taco Bell Foundation awarded $1 million to 220 dreamers, creators and innovators. You can read some of the 2016 awardees and learn more about the scholarship opportunity by CLICKING HERE.

For Khorii Tinson it was an opportunity to go to the University of Texas of Austin. The school is one of 80 schools across the country offering accredited dance programs. Out of 7,000 universities and colleges. You can read Khorii’s story by CLICKING HERE. Her video, at the same link, is priceless.

Thanks to dancer and teaching artist Nancy Salmon for sharing this information.
