SAS EOF 2020 Scholar

Margarita Manzano
Major: Psychology, English
Hometown: North Plainfield, NJ
Dream/Goal: My goal is to earn my PhD in Psychology!
What does it mean to be a Scholar?: It is a privilege to be an EOF Scholar. For me to have been a part of a program as special as this one is truly incredible. Not only has EOF been a family to me and the rest of my peers in the graduating class of 2020, but they were also there to support us and cheer us on as we went through college. I am thankful for everyone on the EOF staff, especially for Mrs. Mack-Bright for having been the best counselor I have ever had and for the endless love and support that she has shown her students. I am proud to be called an EOF Scholar.

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.
