OPENING THE DOORS OF EDUCATION
Educational Opportunities, Inc. is a volunteer organization dedicated to assisting youth in Dallas who have the academic ability but not the financial means to attend college. Scholarship grants are coupled with mentoring provided by members of the Board of Trustees.
WHAT WE DO
The EdOp program consists of three primary streams of support designed to remove the financial burden of higher education while providing essential guidance, giving our scholars the opportunity to learn, explore, and flourish inside the classroom and beyond.

Since its inception in 1965, EdOp has enabled hundreds of scholars to pursue their dreams through higher education. EdOp rewards the best and brightest from select Dallas magnet schools with tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships and travel rewards. EdOp's unique mentoring system ensures that a high number of those scholars who start the program finish it, with a degree in hand and a pathway to career success ahead of them.
