Additional TOPS funding in the spring unlikely, Edwards says

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards says additional TOPS funding in the spring is unlikely, USA Today reports.

“As of right now I don’t see much likelihood of additional TOPS funding for the spring semester,” Edwards said this week while visiting Shreveport, according to USA Today.

Funding to the TOPS scholarship was cut by 30 percent as the result of state budget cuts, and though scholarships were honored for the current semester, next semester they’ll only cover about 46 percent of tuition. This means students will have to come up with the rest themselves.
