Jindal Wants To Tweak TOPS Scholarship Program For Soldiers
Governor Jindal wants to make TOPS more soldier-friendly.
Under current law, students have one year from the time they graduate high school to be able to receive TOPS. Right now, those who enter a branch of military service immediately after high school are given five years to continue TOPS eligibility.
Jindal says he wants soldiers who re-enlist to be eligible for the free college tuition when they leave the military.
