SAS EOF 2020 Scholar

John De La Rosa
Major: Human Resource Management
Minor: Labor Studies
Hometown: West New York, NJ
Favorite Rutgers Moment: There's been lots of great moments but one of my favorite early moments was participating with the 4th Floor in our EOF Program Talent show lol.
Dream/Goal: Some of my dreams are to establish generational wealth for my family and be able to travel the world while young.
What does it mean to be a Scholar?: To me, being an EOF student means growing from the challenges and obstacles that have led up to this point. Many of us are the cultivation of many generations of hard work. As EOF scholars we are required to pass the knowledge on and empower the future classes to come!

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.
