TOPS and Go Grants Discussed Throughout Louisiana

An editorial was published in The Shreveport Times on February 18th that cited LBP research on TOPS and Go Grants, Louisiana’s higher education financial aid programs. Here is an excerpt:

But recent developments have raised legitimate issues regarding its cost and objectives during a time of tough budget decisions.

However Louisiana approaches its scholarship and grant programs, it doesn’t take a huge GPA to realize that tinkering maybe in order. Even in an election year, let’s hope lawmakers aren’t too timid to embrace the discussion.
