Information for Newly Admitted EOS Students

 

New EOS Students

The Educational Opportunity Scholars (EOS) Program, which also goes by the name Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF), is a New Jersey state-funded program centered on the success of students. The Drew EOS office provides access for motivated state residents from underrepresented populations/areas that meet the income criteria and exhibit the potential for high achievement.

By providing academic intervention services, we work to help participants reach their full personal, intellectual, spiritual and academic potential.

EOS Summer Program

Drew's EOS Summer program is an immersive college readiness initiative to prepare you to enter a rigorous academic setting. You'll begin your college career early by taking two credit-bearing courses, familiarizing yourself with the various support services available at on campus, and establishing a sense of community among the EOS Class of 2022. Students are required to participate in this 5-week summer program, beginning July 8th and ending on August 10th. Students will live on campus for the duration of the summer program. Drew's EOS Summer program is offered at no cost to the participants.
