Completers Grant

The Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance, a program of the Board of Regents, has begun administration of the Completers Grant. The Completers Grant is designed to incentivize near-completers in high demand fields such as healthcare, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to earn their undergraduate degrees. The Completers Grant will provide scholarships to students who are within 30 credit hours of completing a degree at a two-or-four-year campus. At Louisiana Tech University eligible students will have the ability to receive funding for no more than three consecutive quarters. Funding for the Completers Grant is made possible through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund dollars.

Student Eligibility Requirements:
To be eligible for the Completers Grant, a student must:
• Be a Louisiana resident;

• Meet one of the priority criteria listed below;
• For credit programs, students shall meet the enrolling institution’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) policy for receipt of Title IV aid;
• Be enrolled through the 10th class day.

Each academic year, priority shall be given to those students who are within 30 hours of completing their degree in a STEM or health care field as follows:
• First, to those students who are expected to complete their program of study/graduating in the fall 2021-2022 who have significantly depleted or who have no other sources of financial aid;
