Act 101/Educational Opportunity Program

Bloomsburg University’s Act 101/Educational Opportunity Program, coordinated through the Department of Academic Enrichment, provides support and opportunities for success to students traditionally under-represented in higher education.

Act 101 provides access to higher education and support for highly motivated students who exhibit the potential for success, but who come from disadvantaged backgrounds and lack the educational preparation necessary to be admitted to Bloomsburg University.

First Wright Scholar recipient named

Irv Wright Scholarship

Jeffny Etienne, a sophomore ACT 101/EOP student, was recently named the first recipient of Bloomsburg University's Dr. Irvin Wright Endowed Scholarship after demonstrating substantial academic achievement from her first year to second year, as well as the qualities reflective of a student on track to become a successful college graduate. Etienne was awarded $1,000 scholarship for the spring 2017 semester.

Wright, former associate dean for academic achievement who retired in 2015, established the $25,000 endowment beginning in 2016 with plans to continue awarding scholarships over the next five years. Wright's professional career spanned 45 years, 38 of those at working with BU's Act 101/Educational Opportunity Program, for which he served as director from 1996 through 2012.
