Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program

About 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.

For more than 40 years, HEOP has provided educationally and financially deserving students with academic, financial, personal and career counseling support in order to guide students toward educational success.

HEOP and its activities are supported by the New York State Education Department and St. John Fisher College.

This program gives students like me assistance financially and academically. Most of all, HEOP has helped me be motivated to become a better student through the resources presented to me. These resources will help me succeed in college and beyond. HEOP is a family that I’ve grown to love and appreciate."
