In its Monday “Number of the Day,” the Louisiana Budget Project notes that the average GO Grant award for a qualifying full-time student attending LSU in 2011-12 is $918 — down from $1,879 just two years ago.

Go Grants, which provide financial assistance to low-income college students, have been cut in recent years due to state revenue declines. LBP’s source is the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance.
