LELA Scholarship

The Louisiana Education Loan Authority (LELA) played a major role in helping our first annual George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts Art Contest to be a success. Now, we want to let you know about one of their great programs. From a letter from LELA:
Governor Bobby Jindal has officially proclaimed the month of February as Financial Aid Awareness Month! In connection with Governor Jindal’s proclamation, the Louisiana Education Loan Authority (Lela) has launched its ninth annual statewide campaign to inform college bound students and their parents that financial assistance is available for college and to apply early. In addition to reminding students of the immediate need to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), we encourage Louisiana high school seniors to participate in Lela’s Cash for College - What’s Your Story scholarship contest.

Lela will award
$6,000 in scholarships to Louisiana high school seniors through its “Cash for College” contest. Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded through the “What’s Your Story” segment of the contest where seniors submit a brief “story” and photo online telling us why they want to attend college. In addition, six $500 scholarships will be awarded through random drawings.
