EAST ORANGE, NJ - Bloomfield College is the first college to partner with the East Orange Housing Authority (EOHA) on an initiative to create clear pathways to college, EOHA-specific-scholarships, internship opportunities, mentoring, and academic support for EOHA assisted students at Bloomfield College.

“The East Orange Housing Authority is proud to partner with Bloomfield College to offer scholarships and resources to families in need. This initiative assists to minimize the financial barriers to higher education and creates a pathway for sustainability and success,” stated Elena D. Coley, EOHA Director of Operations. 

The partnership offers a model for collaboration between Bloomfield College and EOHA to encourage college readiness and support the neighborhood and families.

“I am so impressed with the commitment to higher education shown by the Housing Authority of the City of East Orange,” said Adam Castro, Vice President for Enrollment Management. “I hope this partnership demonstrates how powerful these relationships between colleges and local organizations can be to provide access to life-changing educational experiences to the youth of our county and state.”

Together, the College and EOHA will create and nurture programs, projects, and activities that will address college access and persistence challenges for students under the purview of the EOHA. The partnership is based on a mutual desire to provide opportunities to achieve a higher education and life-changing experiences to qualified and motivated students; provide and promote college access and affordability, and strengthen the relationship between Bloomfield College and EOHA.

This partnership extends beyond college-bound students and to the employees of EOHA. Bloomfield College will offer current and active EOHA employees a 25% tuition reduction on full-time undergraduate, part-time undergraduate, and graduate tuition rates. Applicants must meet Bloomfield College admission standards and be formally admitted to the institution to receive this benefit.

“As an educational institution, we must always revisit and evaluate how we partner and serve our neighboring communities to assure our collective success. EOHA is an exceptional organization with a great mission,” stated Dr. Patrick Lamy, Vice President for Student Affairs. “We hope this partnership is one of many to follow to support our mission to provide some of the most diverse student populations in New Jersey with a superior and affordable educational experience.”

The EOHA partnership with Bloomfield College was initiated in honor of EOHA’s new community development campaign, “Building Homes, Changing Lives.” The campaign commemorates the EOHA providing 60 years of service to the community and the start of over $30 million dollars in redevelopment projects.

Scholarship applications are open to EOHA participants. The application deadline is March 16, 2018. The first series of scholarships will be awarded at the launch of the EOHA Building Homes, Changing Lives campaign, on Thursday, March 29, 2018, Diamond Jubilee Gala.

Please direct any questions regarding the scholarship application and process to Nicole Cibelli, Director of Admission, at 973-748-9000 ext. 1230 or nicole_cibelli@bloomfield.edu.
