The Educational Opportunity Fund Program (EOF) at RCBC provides a customized support system designed to empower students to achieve their educational goals at RCBC. This comprehensive program includes support in academics, personal growth, leadership skills as well as guidance on meeting individual transfer and career development goals. The EOF program typically recruits applicants who are historically underrepresented in higher education and who are first-generation and/or first-time, full-time freshmen.

EOF Program Eligibility Criteria

If you are a New Jersey resident who has earned a high school diploma or its equivalent, interested in attending college full-time, and meet the financial guidelines, you may be eligible for acceptance to the EOF program.  All first-time, first generation freshmen must also apply for and attend the pre-college summer institute, "THRIVE".

The financial eligibility chart summarizes the determining financial guidelines for acceptance to the EOF. If your family's income is lower than the amount listed for the size of of your household, you are probably eligible for EOF funding.
