EOF Graduate Grant Program

The objective of the graduate EOF program is to increase participation in graduate and professional study of New Jersey residents from backgrounds of historical poverty. Priority in receiving EOF graduate grants shall be given to students who received the EOF undergraduate grant.


  • New Jersey resident 12 consecutive months prior to receiving the award
  • Students attending graduate school at out-of-state institutions are not eligible for EOF graduate grants.
  • Students who received EOF grants as undergraduates shall be given priority consideration for EOF graduate grants. These students are presumed to have met the financial eligibility criteria for EOF graduate grants as long as they continue to demonstrate financial need.
  • Other students must meet rules governing state residency (and non-citizens and resident alien status respectively), the EOF financial eligibility criteria, be a full-time graduate student as defined by the institution offering the graduate program of study, and attend an eligible institution participating in the Fund.
  • Students must be enrolled in 9 credited hours per semester in a graduate program.
  • Students may not receive an EOF graduate grant to pursue a second graduate or professional degree at the same level of study for which he or she has already been funded. Graduate degree and certificate programs must have a minimum requirement of 24 equivalent semester hours and be at least one academic year in duration.
