New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund

The New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund provides financial assistance and support services to students from educationally and economically disadvantaged backgrounds who attend institutions of higher education in the State of New Jersey.


Forty-two of New Jersey's community colleges and public and private four-year colleges and universities participate in the EOF Program. However, the actual number of available spaces at each college or university is limited. To participate in an EOF program, students must be New Jersey residents and must apply to a New Jersey college or university and file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Because EOF is a campus-based program, each campus is responsible for student recruitment, selection, program services, and its own specific criteria for EOF admission and program participation.

Students should contact the EOF director at the particular institution of their interest for specific admissions information and requirements for participation in the EOF program. Grants are generally available to students from families with a background of poverty, whose annual income falls within the scale listed below and who meet the academic criteria set by the institution of their choice.

Grants are available for both undergraduate and graduate studies. Undergraduate grants range from $200 - $2,500 and graduate grants from $200 - $4,350 depending on the type of institution and financial need.
