Educational Opportunity Fund

Family and Friends of EOF

Welcome to our Educational Opportunity Fund Family & Friends page!

EOF stands for Educational Opportunity Fund, however, at Monmouth University we also like to think of it as Extension of Family! We meet with scholars one-on-one to provide support for academic, career and personal development. Each cohort has an assigned counselor to address the needs of that particular group of excited scholars.

How to support a current high school student OR transfer student interested in applying to EOF:

  1. When students apply to Monmouth University through the Common Application, they should indicate they are interested in EOF. That will automatically email the supplemental EOF application to be completed online.
  2. Students will need to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with “prior- prior” tax information and upload any additional documentation that may be requested.
  3. Encourage your student to be themselves during their interview process. We understand it is a stressful day but we want to learn about who they are!
  4. The student should remain in contact with Undergraduate Admissions for updates on their application.

How to support current EOF scholars:

  1. Most questions and concerns can be addressed when you refer the scholar to their EOF Counselor to talk it through. We have staff available Monday- Friday between 8:45am-5pm.
  2. Remind scholars each year to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with “prior- prior” tax information and upload any additional documentation that may be requested.
