Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)
The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) was created in 1969 by the New York State Legislature to help academically and economically disadvantaged New York residents gain access to the state’s private colleges and universities. Application to the program is through the College’s Academic Opportunity Program’s Office (AOPO). The total possible amount of each individual grant is determined by factors such as other available funds, NYSED-HEOP Bureau guidelines, student financial need, NYS-legislated appropriations, and a joint decision by the HEOP director and the Financial Aid director.
