Welcome to Rutgers University-Camden and the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program! EOF is a state-funded program providing opportunities for higher education to New Jersey residents who would not be able to attend college without the program's financial assistance and special services.
The Mission of EOF
EOF contributes to the development of a college-educated public that reflects the diversity of New Jersey. EOF works in partnership with New Jersey colleges and universities and the K-12 educational system to provide access to higher education for students from families/communities disadvantaged by low-income and the lack of access to the quality educational preparation necessary to attend college. EOF will partner with established pre-college efforts and seek to initiate additional opportunities to identify and prepare students for college at the pre-collegiate level.
At the postsecondary level, the access and opportunity provided by EOF is not limited to simply meeting freshman (or transfer) student enrollment goals but to also focus on student success. In this vein, EOF provides support for educational initiatives, support services, and leadership development activities that assist students to improve their chances of success in specific majors and career fields and prepares them for the changing world of work and to assume leadership in their communities and the state.
