Educational Opportunity Fund
The Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) is a state-sponsored program for students who have the will and potential to do well in college, but require additional academic and financial assistance. Since 1969, EOF at County College of Morris has been delivering top-notch academic enrichment services, such as a summer orientation, workshops, seminars, one-on-one counseling, tutoring assistance, professional mentoring, pre-advisement and transfer services. In addition, the program provides online academic support through Blackboard, the college's educational learning platform for online and hybrid courses. Along with academic support, financial assistance is also given as part of the student's financial aid package in the form of a New Jersey state grant, once a student has been selected to participate in the program. Ultimately, EOF provides students with the necessary tools to reach their goal of college success and graduation.
To be considered, all students must complete the EOF application, be accepted to CCM full-time and have taken the placement exam. Furthermore, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) found on the FAFSA website. For returning CCM students looking to apply, there is a 24 earned credit limit. Additional financial documentation is also required and an interview with an EOF staff member must be scheduled to complete the application process. For additional information and to request an application, students can contact the EOF Office by phone at 973-328-5270, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or download the application and all requirements at the EOF website. The EOF office is located in Cohen Hall, Room 211. You can also check out the EOF program on Facebook.
