The Taylor Opportunity Program for Student (TOPS) scholarship is awarded to graduating Louisiana high school seniors who have met certain academic requirements and have filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by July 1. The TOPS scholarship will only fund the tuition portion of institutional charges for two (2) academic years. It does not cover the cost of books, supplies, and fees. TOPS recipients must enroll in an eligible school, as a full time student, within one year after graduation from high school. Completion of 24 credit hours during the fall and spring semesters with a minimum overall GPA of 2.5 is required to maintain eligibility. For more information, please contact your high school counselor or the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA) at (800) 259-5626 or online at http://www.osfa.la.gov/ (opens new window).
