The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application needed to apply for all federal and state aid programs. Indicate Louisiana State University (code#00201) in the school release section of the application. In most cases, you and your parents will need to complete this application. You can get the FAFSA from your high school guidance office or any college financial aid office. Use this form if you have never applied for aid. If you applied for aid in the previous year, you may receive the Federal Renewal Application, which should be updated and submitted instead of the FAFSA.
The petroleum industry demonstrates its confidence in the Craft & Hawkins Department of Petroleum Engineering and its need for top petroleum engineers by offering more than 40 undergraduate scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 per academic year.
