Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program
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.

"HEOP gave my fellow HEOP members and myself the opportunity to achieve greatness at a cost that we could afford. Along with doing that, I gained a new family that will always be there when I need them. This is why I would consider HEOP a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
