Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF),

Scope and Contents

History of EOF at Rutgers: In 1963 Rutgers Educational Action Program was inaugurated to aid recruitment of minority students. In 1966 the Upward Bound Program was initiated to support minority students at Rutgers. The Urban University was instituted in 1969 at Newark, New Brunswick, Piscataway and Camden. The program greatly expanded opportunities to disadvantaged students (economically and educationally). In that same year the Educational Opportunity Fund was created to provide financial aid for disadvantaged students. The Urban University Department developed academic foundation centers in all of the individual colleges by 1972.
