Housing Scholarships Available for Fall Semester at The Oaks

Released: 07/23/2009

Housing scholarships of $1,100 are available for qualified students at The Oaks apartment complex on the LSU Alexandria campus for the fall semester, announced apartment director Angie Rollins.

The scholarships – which cover nearly half the rental cost --are designated for first-time residents who have a minimum 2.5 grade point average in high school or college, and they are applicable only in the fall semester. The offer is good for a four-bedroom apartment housing arrangement.

Rollins said the cost for each student after the scholarship is $1,200 for the rental period between Aug. 17 and Dec. 31. The price includes furnishings, cable TV, Internet access, an electricity allowance, and water, sewer and trash service. The Oaks features a swimming pool, recreational areas, computer lab, laundry facilities, social activities and 24-hour security.

“The housing scholarship creates an exceptional value for students, and it’s been very popular. Students should apply for the housing scholarship as quickly as possible because there are a limited number of units available,” Rollins said.

Students who sign a 10-month lease also will receive 40 free meals through the campus dining service.

Additional information is available by calling The Oaks at 767-2616 or at www.lsua.edu.
