Favorite Rutgers Moment: Attending the Alternative Spring Break at Dominican Republic with the Center for Latino Arts & Culture

What does it mean to be a Scholar?: To me being an EOF Scholar means having a community of like-minded and dedicated peers. We share similar stories and I believe as a collective, it strengthens our presence in private and public industries. Throughout my time as an EOF Scholar, I was able to meet amazing individuals and know that I will maintain a long-lasting relationship with them.

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.
