Taylor Opportunity Program for Students Performance Award

Description

The TOPS Performance Award pays the TOPS Award Amount set by the administering agency for a student at a particular institution during the 2016-2017 academic year unless increased by Act of the Legislature plus an annual stipend of $400. If a student attends a college within the Louisiana Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the award amount will be the weighted average award amount that was set for public colleges and universities during the 2016-2017 academic year plus an annual stipend of $400. The TOPS application deadline is July 1 following the one year anniversary of high school graduation. For example, if you graduate in 2021, you must file your FAFSA or TOPS On-line Application so that it is received by the federal processor by July 1, 2022 to receive full TOPS funding. However, to ensure timely processing and award notification, students are strongly encouraged to file at least six weeks prior to entry into college. Kindly visit the scholarship website for more information.
