Educational Opportunity Fund Program (EOF)

Do you need Financial Aid to help you pay for college? Would you benefit from tutoring and academic coaching? The Educational Opportunity Fund Program (EOF) at Saint Peter’s University offers financial and academic resources to help students succeed in college.


The mission of the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Program at Saint Peter’s University is to provide students who come from disadvantaged academic and economic backgrounds with the necessary skills to enroll and successfully complete their college education. Furthermore, the EOF Program provides a bridge by which to close the gap between students’ initial status and their academic development, and therefore, to build a stronger and more diverse student body.
