Title 17. Education

Chapter 20-F. Louisiana GO Grant Program


17:3046     Louisiana GO Grant program; legislative findings


A. The legislature finds that a college education should be available to all qualified students, regardless of their financial means, and declares that the Louisiana GO Grant program established by the Board of Regents has enhanced access to postsecondary educational opportunities for Louisiana students with demonstrated financial need by providing critically needed assistance to help cover the cost of attending postsecondary education institutions in the state. The legislature further finds that leveraging access to postsecondary education for students with demonstrated financial need ensures that all qualified students are afforded an opportunity to achieve their full educational potential, increase their overall quality of life, and maximize their contribution to the state’s economic development.


B. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Chapter to the contrary, any public or private entity, including any nonprofit organization, may make a directed donation to any eligible postsecondary institution for a student who is a recipient of a Louisiana GO Grant.
