NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Louisiana parents can start applying again for the state's scholarship program for kids in elementary and secondary schools.

The scholarships are meant to empower low-income parents with the same opportunity as others to send kids to the school of their choice.

To be eligible, students have to be enrolled in a public school rated with a "C" grade or lower. They also qualify, if they are going into kindergarten for the first time.
