Louisiana State Financial Aid: Grants & Scholarships

The state of Louisiana offers financial aid opportunities to Louisiana residents including grants and scholarship programs. 


The first step to an affordable college education in Louisiana is filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA®. This financial aid application determines student eligibility for federal student loans, grants including the Pell grant, work-study programs, and some scholarships.
