SAS EOF 2020 Scholar

Jose Ayala
Major: Biological Sciences
Minor: N/A
Hometown: Passaic, New Jersey
Favorite Rutgers Moment: My favorite Rutgers moment was moving into the Latin Images Living Learning Community and finding a community that greeted me with open arms.
Dream/Goal: My goal is to explore the business world that is within the health field because that is where I feel the most comfortable.
What does it mean to be a Scholar?: EOF has been the foundation of my undergraduate career and I couldn't do it without them. They gave me all the support that I needed in order to excel as a student and I am grateful to be a part of this organization. I want to give a special thank you to my EOF counselor, Christine Pitts, for always being there for me and guiding in the right direction.

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.
