New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund


Scholarship Value: $2,750
Awards Available: 100

The New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) provides financial assistance and support services (e.g. counseling, tutoring, and developmental course work) to students from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds who attend participating institutions of higher education in the State of New Jersey. Undergraduate grants range from $200 annually to $2,750 annually depending on the type of institution and financial need. These grants are renewable based upon continued eligibility.

Forty-two of New Jersey's colleges and universities participate in the Fund. However, the actual number of available spaces at each college or university is limited. Since EOF is a campus-based program, each campus program is responsible for student recruitment, selection, program services, and its own specific criteria for EOF admission and program participation. View the contact information for each of our Public Research Universities, State Colleges and Universities, Community Colleges, and Independent Colleges and Uiversities and campus programs.

As noted earlier, admission into EOF is conducted at the campus level. Candidates interested in applying for EOF should contact the appropriate EOF Campus Program Director to discuss the specific eligibility requirements and application process of their respective institution.
