Tulane awards millions of dollars in financial aid to Louisiana students every single year. Louisiana students qualify for many merit-based scholarships in addition to need-based scholarships, grants, and loans.
Tulane's Focus Louisiana program is a set of financial aid and admission initiatives aimed to encourage prospective students from Louisiana to explore the opportunities available at Tulane. Tulane offers guaranteed admission to Louisiana students who meet certain academic, curricular, and application qualifications. These initiatives are offered to students graduating from Louisiana secondary schools and residing in the state.
This competitive scholarship provides four-year, full tuition awards to students who demonstrate excellence in academics and leadership in their community.
In addition to these initiatives, Louisiana residents who demonstrate financial need may be considered for additional Tulane-awarded need-based aid. Louisiana residents may also apply the Louisiana TOPS Award (Taylor Opportunity Program for Students) toward the cost of attending Tulane.
