New Jersey State Grant Program

Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF)

The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) Graduate Grant is designed to increase the number of New Jersey residents from educationally and/or economically underserved backgrounds in graduate or professional study. Students at Georgian Court University (and other private institutions) receive up to a $2,900 state grant. The grant is renewed, based upon continued eligibility and the availability of funds. Priority is given to students who participated in EOF programs as undergraduate students.

Eligible Students

To be considered for an EOF Graduate Grant, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • be a New Jersey resident for at least 12 consecutive months—immediately prior to enrollment;
  • be accepted as a full-time graduate student to the university;
  • have completed the FAFSA; and
  • exhibit a financial need, based on the state’s criteria for eligibility.
