Graduate assistantships are a great way to gain real-world experience while getting paid to further your education.
The Graduate Opportunity Program provides tuition assistance to EOP, HEOP, and SEEK program graduates undertaking graduate study at a participating SUNY institution. Because funding is limited, early application to the campus of choice is encouraged.
The graduate opportunity program will provide students with financial support to cover tuition at participating SUNY graduate and professional institution.
Students must apply and be admitted to a participating campus prior to approval of Graduate Opportunity Program funding. Please see the list of participating campuses below. Documentation of a student's prior status as an opportunity program student is also required. Students who are interested in graduate study are encouraged to consult with their undergraduate program director.
Graduate students are eligible for low-interest PLUS loans from the U.S. Department of Education.
