SAS EOF 2020 Scholar

What does it mean to be a Scholar?: Being an EOF scholar has been the highlight of my time at Rutgers. From the beginning of my journey here I was given endless opportunities that would otherwise not have been possible for me. Along with these opportunities I also had someone guiding me through this hectic journey; my EOF counsellor. Without her knowledge and support throughout the years, I would be lost. I can truly say being an EOF Scholar has helped me make my dreams of receiving a degree possible. Being an EOF scholar means I now have the opportunity to create more for not only myself but also my family.

2020 red blackThe Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program was created, through New Jersey Legislation, in 1968 to provide academic support and financial access to New Jersey residents to attend college. EOF students qualify for the Program on the basis of academic and financial need. The SAS EOF Program is the largest in New Jersey, serving over 1300 EOF Scholars in the School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers Business School, Mason Gross School of the Arts, the School of Management and Labor Relations, and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. It is the mission of the Rutgers SAS EOF Program to create an environment, which encourages academic excellence, and introduces students (through educational events, programs, and workshops) to all of the resources and enrichment opportunities that are available to them as EOF Scholars at Rutgers University.
