Louisiana Scholarships

With its lush swamplands and beautiful metropolises, Louisiana is undoubtedly one of the most unique states in the country. New Orleans alone is a melting pot of culture, including delicious food, great music and a vibrant community.

The state that gave birth to jazz is also home to some excellent postsecondary institutions. In addition to private schools like Tulane University, Louisiana is home to the sprawling Louisiana State University and University of Louisiana systems.

Of course, an education from these institutions doesn’t come cheap. Fortunately, Louisiana students can apply for plenty of scholarship and financial aid opportunities from private and public sources.

Popular Louisiana Scholarships

Louisiana’s most popular scholarship, both in terms of number of applications and number of awards, is the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS). The Louisiana Office of Student Financial Aid (LOSFA) funds this program.

TOPS awards come in several forms. For example, the TOPS Opportunity Award is reserved for out-of-state students. The TOPS Tech Award, on the other hand, is designed for students attending a technical institution like Bossier Parish Community College.

Most Louisiana colleges, particularly larger ones, fund several scholarships. Louisiana State University offers the LSU Centennial Award, for example, while the University of Louisiana funds the Martin S. Bourg Scholarship.

Applying for Louisiana Scholarships

While LSU and UL offer a substantial number of scholarships, it’s important to note that some of these awards may be specific to certain campuses.

Additionally, not all Louisiana scholarships are reserved for state residents. The aforementioned TOPS Opportunity award is designed specifically for out-of-state students.

If you have close relatives who attended a Louisiana college or university, you may be eligible for a tuition break. For example, LSU Baton Rouge funds a $1,000 Legacy Scholarship.
