OUR PROGRAMS

Educational Opportunities EDOP Scholarships Icon.png

SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Educational Opportunities, Inc. commits an annual $7,000 renewable scholarship to the students until completion of their undergraduate college degree, provided 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 students and to provide forums assisting with their transition from high school to college. Students with high grade point averages are recognized with monetary awards from memorial funds in the endowment.

Mentorship Program

Unique among either scholarship programs, EdOp provides a mentor as well as financial assistance for every student. Board members serve as mentors for each class and maintain communication with students throughout their college years and beyond. Mentors often counsel students in such areas as managing finances, choosing college majors, and balancing their time between work and academic responsibilities. In addition, board members gather with students each May to celebrate their achievements in that academic year.

TEXTBOOK & TRAVEL SUPPORT

In addition to their renewable scholarship, each EdOp student receives $600 for textbooks per year. As college expenses rise, we continue to weigh the feasibility of providing increased support. Various memorial funds in the endowment are available to help students at out-of-state schools pay for transportation to return home once a year or to assist with travel expenses related to for-credit semester internships or study-abroad programs offered by their school. Through this additional financial support, 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!
