TOPS (Taylor Opportunity Program for Students) Award
Current TOPS Tech Award Information - Unique among the TOPS scholarships, the TOPS Tech Award was created by the Louisiana Legislature with the sole intention of promoting a skilled workforce in Louisiana. Currently, the TOPS Tech Award is offered to qualified high school graduates and provides up to two years of skill or occupational training to be pursued at an accredited Louisiana postsecondary institution that offers a vocational or technical education certificate/diploma. Students can apply for TOPS through completion of their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA). Completion of the FASFA is a graduation requirement.
