Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF). This program is funded by the state legislature and is administered by Rutgers University. Full-time New Jersey residents with a background of historic financial and educational disadvantage may apply for EOF grants. Students who received EOF grants as undergraduates are eligible if their incomes fall within the required range; others must document their eligibility. Contact the law school for applications and additional information. Grants up to $2,850 per year are renewable for each year of graduate study, subject to continued eligibility. Students must complete the FAFSA form each year to be considered.
