Getting Connected


Are you ...

  • committed to improving your education but know you need extra academic support to succeed?

  • concerned about how to finance your college education?

  • more motivated now than you were in high school?

Opportunity Scholarship (OSP) is the name for the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF)* at New Jersey City University. Over the years we've helped thousands of qualified students meet their academic and financial commitments and through education achieve their hopes and dreams for a better future. The program is rich in support services that focus on getting you the help you need to succeed.

For Prospective Students: Let the OSP program at New Jersey City University be your connection to the fulfillment of your goals. If you have been a resident of New Jersey for at least one year prior to receiving an OSP grant, have a high school diploma or GED Certificate, can demonstrate through an OSP interview that you have the motivation to complete a college program, qualify financially, and agree to participate in a six-week pre-college orientation program, OSP is the program for you. Apply now!

* The Educational Opportunity Fund is one of the nation's most comprehensive and successful state-supported efforts to provide access to higher education for economically and educationally disadvantaged students. The EOF assists low-income residents who are capable and motivated but lack adequate preparation for college study. Helping students succeed and graduate, the EOF supports a wide array of campus-based outreach and support services at institutions.

Students enrolled in an EOF program receive financial assistance through grants ranging from $575 to $700. These grants are renewable annually based upon continued eligibility. Students also receive support services such as counseling, tutoring, and developmental course work. There are a limited number of student spaces available at each campus program so it is important to apply early. Final determination of eligibility is made by the campus director.
