The Educational Opportunity Fund, a student success program, promotes the academic achievement, career development, and civic engagement of low-income, first generation college students. Our goal is to ensure each one of our students is able to establish a foundation for graduation and or successful transfer to a four-year college while developing the self-management skills and work-ethic necessary for academic, personal, and professional success. Students admitted to Brookdale’s program are highly motivated, goal-oriented, and committed to pursuing a program of study on a full-time basis leading to the completion of either a certificate equivalent to twenty-four credit hours or an Associates degree.
On a state-wide basis, over 13,000 students are enrolled in EOF programs at both two and four year colleges and universities, both public and private institutions. Since the start of the program in 1968 and to date- over 42,000 college graduates are EOF participants.
Brookdale’s EOF Program
An EOF state grant of up to $1,050 per year is awarded to program participants, in addition to special funding for a variety of educational and career-related activities. While financial support is a key to providing college access and an ability to take advantage of a host of educational opportunities, the program’s support services are critical to helping students manage the college experience successfully. Support services include a college preparatory summer program designed to provide academic preparation for college entry as well as academic advisement, personal counseling, learning support, student leadership, achievement recognition, and career development and transfer services.
Applicants may be high school seniors or graduates, GED recipients, current Brookdale students with less than 40 degree credits, or transfer students with previous enrollment in an EOF program at another college.
