The Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA) is a Program of the Louisiana Board of Regents, administering the state's scholarship and grant programs, and the state's Internal Revenue Code Section 529 college savings program. Through outreach services, LOSFA is also active in the dissemination and support of college access information and services with a concentration on assisting students from low-income families and first-generation college attendees, in locating and obtaining the resources necessary to pursue and complete a postsecondary education.
We promote college access through college access browses, integrated business and industry visits, postsecondary campus visits, and more.
We prepare students for college success by providing academic tutoring support services, ACT/SAT standardized test preparation activities, comprehensive mentoring, college/career counseling and advising, dual enrollment support, and more.
We provide college financial aid and related support services by administering Louisiana’s merit-based scholarship, known as the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS), Louisiana’s need-based scholarship (GO Grant), LOSFA’s Go Youth ChalleNGe Grant, START Saving Plan, START K12 Saving Plan, and more.
