For a rural community Choudrant residents and businesses have access to an unusually high concentration of higher educational resources.  Within Lincoln Parish are two state universities, Louisiana Tech University in Ruston and Grambling State University in Grambling, both of which are within 20 minutes of Choudrant. 

Choudrant is also less than 30 miles from the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Delta Community College (in Monroe) and is about an hour and a half from Louisiana State University Shreveport and the LSU Health Science Center (Shreveport Campus)
