This report provides information on the students who have enrolled in the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program at 40 institutions of higher education in New Jersey for the academic years 1968-69 and 1969-70.

This report describes the family background of the students in terms of family size, earning power, and occupation; the EOF family's need for special help; the number of students assisted by EOF and their ethnic backgrounds; the performance of EOF students; the involvement of these students in college life; and the EOF Program. Tables with data on the distribution of the EOF students in institutions, by county and region; and by sex and ethnic origin, average financial aid package; credit hours taken; attrition rate, and sample of courses taken are presented in Appendix A. Appendix B lists the colleges participating in the Fund; and The Educational Opportunity Act of 1968 is reproduced in Appendix C. (AF)
