Louisiana's Need Based Student Financial Assistance Program
The Louisiana Go Grant is a need-based financial aid program aimed at making college more affordable for students from moderate- and low-income families. Louisiana resident students who are eligible for and receive the federal Pell Grant may also be eligible for a Go Grant. The grant helps cover the difference between the actual cost of attending a public or private college in Louisiana and the amount of a student's Pell Grant award.
The Go Grant award for full-time students is $2,000 per academic year. Eligible part-time students may receive up to $1,000 per year.
