The LOSFA Trailblazer Leadership Program provides financial aid and college access training with the added benefits of leadership and mentoring skills training, now, for 9th-12th grade high school students.

Applicants who are selected to participate in the program for the 2019-2020 academic year will utilize various technologies to attend meetings held via webinars, conference calls, web-based posts, etc., and in person at various colleges and universities around Louisiana. Applicants who are selected to participate in the Trailblazer Leadership Program also have the opportunity to compete for scholarships.

LOSFA uses an application process to select students. The Trailblazer participant selection process is intended to be a learning experience for students, allowing all 9th-12th grade students who aspire to participate in the Trailblazer Leadership Program to apply directly to LOSFA. This will provide the added benefit of teaching the students how to access, complete and submit a formal application—a learning process that will benefit them when applying for college admission, financial aid, scholarships, and housing, among other postsecondary educational opportunities.
