About: Section 288 of Title 29 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes of 1950 has been amended and re-enacted to provide financial aid for children and surviving spouses of certain Veterans of this state who died in service in the Armed Forces of the United States or died of a service connected disability incurred during a wartime period. The law provides the same benefits for those children of living Veterans who are rated 90% or above disabled, including 100% individual unemployability, by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs "Schedule for Rating Disabilities", as a result of a disability or disabilities incurred in service in the Armed Forces of the United States. The eligible person may attend any state supported college, university, trade or vocational technical school and are exempt from paying tuition and school imposed fees, such as laboratory, athletic, medical, non-resident or other special fees. Student imposed fees are not exempt. Students are eligible for four (4) years of schooling to be completed in not more than five (5) years.
 
Eligibility: The law requires that the deceased Veteran must have been a resident of the State of Louisiana for at least twelve (12) months immediately preceding entry into service. The living Veteran must have resided in the state not less than twenty-four (24) months immediately preceding the child's admission into the Program. The surviving spouse must use this Program within ten (10) years of the date eligibility is established. A child must be between the ages of sixteen (16) and twenty-five (25).
