Cal State San Bernardino's EOP Renaissance Scholars Program was established in 2003. The program is committed to providing comprehensive support services to EOP-eligible, current and former foster youth as they transition into the university and through to graduation. The success of the EOP Renaissance Scholars Program is a result of services provided through the collaborative efforts of various campus departments at Cal State San Bernardino and community partners.
Students who indicate on their EOP application that they are a current or former foster youth or ward of the court are contacted by the Program Coordinator and informed about the program. If eligible, a student will be asked to submit the required documentation and an interview/campus tour will be arranged.
