Louisiana's Tuition Opportunity Program for Students, commonly called the TOPS Program, is a comprehensive program of state scholarships and is one of the most innovative and progressive student assistance programs in the nation. TOPS has four components: the Opportunity Award, the Performance Award, the Honors Award and the Teacher Award. Each award has specific eligibility and selection criteria, including high school grade point average, ACT score, graduating rank, and completion of a specified college preparatory core curriculum. The Teacher Award is designed for undergraduate students who intend to teach in a Louisiana elementary or secondary school upon graduation.
