The Graduate Opportunity Program (GOP) is funded by a special appropriation from the State University of New York. GOP provides financial support for tuition and fees associated with graduate study at the SUNY Oneonta to former EOP (Educational Opportunity Program), HEOP (Higher Educational Opportunity Program), and SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation and Knowledge) program graduates. All three programs provide academic and financial support to economically and educationally disadvantaged undergraduate students at public institutions of higher education (EOP), private or independent colleges or universities (HEOP), and City University of New York colleges and universities (SEEK).
Applicants for GOP funding must be New York State residents and be formally admitted and enrolled in a graduate degree program at SUNY Oneonta. Continuation of GOP support requires that a recipient maintain good academic standing and demonstrate satisfactory academic progress toward degree completion. Funding is contingent upon the New York State budget.
To initiate the application procedure for the GOP tuition scholarship, students must submit a completed Certification of Student Participation (Form A), and an Application for Graduate Opportunity Waiver (Form B – submit annually) to the Office of Graduate Studies in 135 Netzer Administration Building as early as possible, but no later than one month prior to the start of the academic year for which funding is requested.
