OUR PROGRAMS

Educational Opportunities EDOP Scholarships Icon.png

SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Educational Opportunities, Inc. commits a $6,600 renewable scholarship to the students until completion of their undergraduate college degree, provided that they maintain a satisfactory grade point average and pass at least 12 hours per semester. Students are required to submit their transcripts at the end of each semester; if they have maintained their grades and hours, their scholarships renew automatically. EdOp also hosts gatherings during the year to honor and learn from our scholarship students. Students with high grade point averages are recognized with monetary awards from memorial funds in the endowment.

Mentorship Program

Another unique aspect of our program is that Educational Opportunities, Inc. provides a mentor as well as financial assistance to every student. Board members serve as mentors for each class and maintain communication with students throughout the years we are associated with them. Mentors often counsel students in such subjects as managing finances, choosing college majors, and balancing their time between work and academic responsibilities. Students are expected to attend two gatherings during the year which are sponsored by the Board to honor and encourage the students.

TEXTBOOK & TRAVEL SUPPORT

In addition to their renewable scholarship, each of our students currently receives $600 for textbooks. As college expenses rise, we strive to increase the amount of our annual scholarships and textbook funds. Other funds provide awards to help students at out-of-state school pay for transportation to return home once a year or to assist students in study-abroad programs with expenses related to their travel. Through these additional financial aids we aim to give our scholars the tools they need to succeed on campus and beyond.
 
 

BARCELONA WAS AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. I VISITED THE LA SAGRADA FAMILIA, CLIMBED MONTSERRAT, AND TOURED A HISTORIC VINEYARD IN THE CITY. MY PEERS AND I EVEN TOOK A CATALAN CLASS!
