The Educational Opportunity Fund 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 Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program was formed in June 2007 when the liberal arts colleges’ EOF Programs within Rutgers-New Brunswick (Douglass College, Livingston College, Rutgers College, and University College) were consolidated. The SAS EOF Program is the largest in New Jersey, serving over 1,200 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. The School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers Business School, and Mason Gross School of the Arts admit incoming first-year students, while the School of Management and Labor Relations and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy admit upper-division students. The SAS EOF Program reports to the School of Arts and Sciences, in the Office of Undergraduate Education. 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.
