Louisiana Go Grant
The purpose of this program is to provide a need-based component to the state’s financial aid plan to support nontraditional and low to moderate-income students who need additional aid to afford the cost of attending college.
To be eligible for a Louisiana Go Grant, a student must:
- Be a Louisiana Resident;
- File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA);
- Receive a federal Pell Grant;
- Have remaining financial need after deducting Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) and all federal/state/institutional grant or scholarship aid ("gift aid") from student's Cost of Attendance (COA);
- Be a student enrolled in an eligible Louisiana institution on at least a half-time basis (minimum 6 hours).
Award amounts to eligible students are based on the institution’s allocation and their packaging policy. Awards may vary with each academic year. Awards will not be paid for summer sessions.
