50,000 Louisiana college students could lose their scholarships - Katie Lobosco, CNN Money

Without the TOPS scholarship, LSU sophomore Baleigh Callaghan may have to move back in with her parents and younger brothers, who live more than an hour away. Nearly 47,000 Louisiana students go to college tuition-free because of a state scholarship program. But that could soon change as a massive budget shortfall puts its funding in jeopardy. Another 3,000 students get a partial scholarship from the state program, known as TOPS. But none of them can know for sure if they'll be getting that money again next year.
