What does it mean to be a Scholar?: EOF was my support system during my tough times financially and mentally. It really taught me how to be stronger every day by the love and support it has provided. It trained me to face challenges in life and helped me to make great memories and friends that are long lasting, after all it is a family. I was supported by great people, loved by my friends and challenged by the activities within the EOF family where the memories are cherished and unforgettable.

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.
