Educational Opportunity Fund application closing on Friday

Submitted by Samantha Suchanek

The application for the Educational Opportunity Fund, or EOF, for FY 2025 is closing at 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29. Any applications received after this date will not be considered.

Submit applications online.

The Educational Opportunity Fund was approved on May 19, 1988, by the Kansas Board of Regents. All departments and units of the university are eligible to apply. If a student organization wishes to apply and is unable to obtain sponsorship by a department or unit, they may request special consideration from the Tuition Enhancements Committee. This request must be made to Samantha Suchanek, Tuition Enhancements Committee chair, at samanthasuchanek@k-state.edu before the application deadline.

The Kansas Board of Regents has limited the use of Educational Opportunity Funds to the criteria in this announcement. Funds allocated through the Educational Opportunity Fund are not to replace existing university support for financial aid or student services. Applicants should not only submit proposals that develop new programs, continue funding of current EOF programs or enhance non-EOF funding existing programs. Since EOF grants are for one year only, there can be no guarantee of continued funding of EOF programs.

The use of EOF is limited to the following purposes:

  • Academic scholarships and fellowships for graduate and undergraduate students.
  • Need-based grants, including awards to students with special expenses or groups of students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education.
  • Salaries or grants for students participating in public and community service programs.
  • Salaries for students employed in campus student services programs.
  • The Tuition Enhancements Committee reserves the right to deny funding if the request is not in line with KBOR guidelines.

If you have any questions, contact Suchanek at samanthasuchanek@k-state.edu.
