Posted in: Alumni News and Events

As a way to share the countless success stories of students who because of the Educational Opportunity Fund were able to attend college, April 9 has been designated EOF Awareness Day in the State of New Jersey. Montclair State is taking the awareness up a level and celebrating all of April as EOF Awareness Month.

One initiative to help grow the network and create connections is the launch the EOF Alumni and Community Advisory Board. The advisory board was formed to engage alumni and support initiatives of the EOF program that will benefit current and future EOF scholars and alumni. Alumni are welcome to join the kickoff meeting tonight, Wednesday, April 21, by registering online.
