Education Opportunity Fund Grant

Allowing greater potential for student success

The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) was created by the Board of Regents in 1989 to provide funding for student financial aid and community/campus service programs during each academic year. The EOF committee receives proposals, conducts hearings, and prepares a budget for expenditures from the fund. The value of the grant varies based on the area of request.

Use of EOF monies is limited to the following purposes:

  • academic scholarships and fellowships for both graduate and undergraduate students
  • need-based grants, including awards to students with special expenses (such as child care) or groups of students historically underrepresented in higher education
  • salaries or grants for students participating in public and community service programs
  • money to provide salaries for students employed in service programs such as tutoring, day care, and peer counseling.

Students may apply by submitting an online application.
