Favorite Rutgers Moment: I don't have a favorite moment; I love being at Rutgers all the time and wish I could've continued to live there during the second half of this semester.

What does it mean to be a Scholar?: It feels almost impossible to put into words how much being an EOF Scholar has meant to me. I remember beginning at Rutgers in the EOF Summer Institute like it was just yesterday. Back then, I was shy and unsure about myself and my abilities. By the end of the summer, I was transformed into a more open and confident individual. Throughout my four years, the EOF program helped me endlessly, and I continued to evolve and become a better version of myself because of it. I am so proud to be an EOF Scholar, and will always think of myself as a member of the EOF 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.
