Preparing students for college completion, transfer to four-year colleges, workforce entry, and responsible citizenship.


Purpose of this Website

Our EOF website is designed to serve as a student success portal, placing emphasis on establishing the site as a communications hub and educational resource for students, both future and current, and for parents and educators. Special features include touch points which promote use of the site for admissions, enrollment, program participation, and assessment of program services. In addition, the site folds in an assortment of Brookdale webpages to promote ease of access to valuable information and additional resources integral to student success, while also allowing students to access external websites that can assist them with managing their college experience. Website questions or comments can be directed to either Richard Morales-Wright at or Rebecca Clark at

EOF: Our State’s Premier College Access and Student Support Service Program

The Educational Opportunity Fund, commonly referred to as EOF, is a state-funded college access and student support service program, hosted and financially supported by New Jersey’s colleges and universities, both public and private, two-year and four-year. All program students are low-income and often the first in their families to attend college and referred to as first generation.

Students admitted to the EOF program must meet both academic and financial eligibility requirements. Their admission is based on evidence of promise and potential to succeed at the college level with the support of the partnership established by the EOF program and the college it resides at.

Over 12,000 students are enrolled in EOF programs across the state and its graduates are educators, business owners, health care professionals, public officials, social service providers, and more. They work in non-profits, educational, business, and our government sectors.

Since 1968, over 40,000 college graduates have earned their certificates, associates, bachelors, masters, doctorates, and professional degrees with the support of the Educational Opportunity Fund.


 The Brookdale EOF Advantage

Program Admission, Financial Support & Student Success Services

Students selected for admission to our program are highly motivated, goal-oriented, and committed to full-time study as they pursue their educational and career-related goals. The completion of our application process is required for pursuing admission. Financial support covering college costs combined with our student success services and the academic and student life programs available at the college serve as the building blocks for a bright and successful future!

Our students are encouraged to work hard in working towards their goals – and this includes making a commitment to active participation in program services, striving to excel in the classroom, and devoting time where possible to exercising social responsibility as active and involved citizens.
