The AS/EOP Grant funds are to be used to meet unusual educationally-related expenses that are incurred by regularly enrolled student members of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). Eligibility criteria must be met in order to qualify for the grant. To be eligible a student must meet the following 3 criteria:
- a student must be an EOP member
- a student must be enrolled at least half time
- a student must have need-based financial aid (e.g., Pell grant, Cal Grant, etc).
EOP follows the by-laws of the Associated Students of UCSB in this process. Students can schedule an appointment with a Peer Mentor to discuss eligibility, possible eligible expenses, and required documentation to apply. Please gather and have your original and itemized receipts at the time of meeting as documentation of expenses are required. Once a student is ready to apply, they can make an appointment to meet with an EOP counselor. During the appointment the counselor will review eligibility, documentation, application requirements and support the student in completing the application. Appointments may be scheduled on our Staff Page, by calling (805) 893-4758, or at the front desk in the Student Resource Building, SRB Suite 2210.
