Financial Support

Attending Rutgers may be more affordable than you think

I received a full Rutgers University-Newark financial aid package, and without it, I would not be in college.

EOF: Educational Opportunity Fund

The NJ Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program provides access to higher education and support for highly motivated students who exhibit the potential for success, but come from families/communities disadvantaged by low income and the lack of access to the quality educational preparation necessary to attend college.

Rutgers-Newark has enabled me to effectively build leadership opportunities and a strong path towards medical school. As a student in the EOF program, I received sustainable support to keep me in school and pursuing my dream.
