Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF)

The State of New Jersey allows for NJ Dreamers/undocumented students to apply for state aid programs like the Tuition Aid Grant, the EOF Program, NJ STARS and NJ STARS II, and the Governor’s Urban Scholarship so long as you meet specific criteria. You will need to complete the NJ Alternative Financial Aid Application on the HESAA website.

EOF is a state-funded program that supports New Jersey’s aspiring first-generation college students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds by providing financial aid, one-on-one and group academic counseling, academic support services, workshops, programs, events, and experiential learning and leadership opportunities to students enrolled in this comprehensive program.
