Graduate Educational Opportunity Program (GEOP)
The Graduate Educational Opportunity Program (GEOP) provides tuition scholarships to graduates of Educational Opportunity Program (EOP); Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP); and CUNY Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge (SEEK) programs within New York State who wish to pursue further education at the graduate level.
Only New York state residents who participated as undergraduates in certified EOP, HEOP, or SEEK programs within New York state and completed their undergraduate degrees are eligible to seek support through the GEOP. All disciplines are eligible.
Tuition scholarships are not awarded for multiple degrees at the same level (e.g., two Master's degrees) or for stand-alone certificate programs. Tuition scholarships are not awarded to part-time students. Only students intending to enroll full-time (12 credits each term) should apply for the program.
The Graduate Educational Opportunity Program receives a limited amount of funding each year. Therefore, tuition scholarships are not guaranteed to all students who apply.
Please contact our Division of Graduate Studies for further information.
