Buffalo State Receives New EOP Funding from SUNY Investment Program

Posted: February 17, 2016

State University of New York (SUNY) officials announced last week that Buffalo State will receive $407,000 to expand the college’s Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). The new funding will enable the campus to enroll approximately 100 additional EOP students.

Sixteen campuses received a total of $2.4 million from the SUNY Investment and Performance Fund to expand existing EOP offerings or establish new programs. Buffalo State received the largest award from the Investment and Performance Fund.

“I would like to thank SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and Chairman H. Carl McCall for their support of Buffalo State’s wonderful Education Opportunity Program,” said Buffalo State President Katherine Conway-Turner. “EOP has transformed the lives of our students and their families for years and I am thrilled to expand access to this proven pathway to success.”

The program was established in 1967 to fulfill New York State's commitment to access to higher education. EOP combines access, academic support, and supplemental financial assistance to make higher education possible for students who have the potential to succeed, but may not otherwise have been offered admission.

Buffalo State receives an average of 4,000 EOP applications each year for approximately 165 openings in each freshman class.
