SAS EOF 2020 Scholar

Priscilla Moreira
Major: Public Health
Minor: Women's and Gender Studies
Hometown: Newark, NJ
Favorite Rutgers Moment: My favorite Rutgers moment would be any time spent with my amazing college friends!
Dream/Goal: To become an epidemiologist and seek to advance the health needs of underrepresented populations through equity work that improves fair opportunities for health.
What does it mean to be a Scholar?: EOF worked as a backbone for my undergraduate career by offering academic advising, guidance, and connecting me to valuable resources. Without the immense support of SAS EOF I would not have been able to navigate the past years at Rutgers University. I am so thankful for the amazing people I met throughout the program, and I will never forget the impact that my advisors have made in my life.

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.
