For a select group of scholars, the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) and the Barnard Opportunity Program (BOP) offer an additional pathway to admission to Barnard. Students admitted to either the HEOP or BOP Scholars Programs exhibit spirit, drive, curiosity and motivation characteristic of Barnard students. Our scholars also achieve academically, despite financial and academic disadvantage. To be considered, students must meet eligibility requirements. Once enrolled, scholars are supported in their drive toward success with further resources and assistance once on campus.
The HEOP Scholars Program was established at Barnard in 1970 and is funded in partnership with New York State. Students must be residents of New York State in order to apply for the program. Students in the Barnard Opportunity Program benefit from the same resources and opportunities as HEOP Scholars but are residents of states other than New York. Our scholars are part of a small community with extra mentorship and support to persist through the challenging and exciting transition to college, four years of growth at Barnard, and post-graduation years.
Below is a sample of the support services available to Barnard College HEOP and BOP Scholars:
In addition, HEOP/BOP juniors and seniors receive financial assistance with the following:
