Taylor Opportunity for Students (TOPS)

The TOPS Scholarship Program (funded by the State of Louisiana) provides scholarships to eligible students graduating from Louisiana high schools after August 1996. Eligibility for these awards is determined by the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA) in Baton Rouge. Information and criteria for these awards is available on the LOSFA website.

Students applying for TOPS should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is also the application for federal grants, loans, and college work-study. This application may be completed online.

You may access your TOPS eligibility information on the LOSFA website through the link “Student Hub” at the top of the LOSFA website.

Questions regarding the administration of the TOPS Program on the McNeese campus should be directed to the Office of Scholarships at 337-475-5140 or
