What is EON?
The Educational Opportunity Network Program (EON) is a UW System grant funded program providing counseling and information on college admissions to qualified adults who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education. An important objective of the program is to counsel participants on financial aid options and to assist in the application process. The goal of the EON program is to increase the number of adult participants who enroll in postsecondary education institutions.
EON is a community-based program that aims to make program services accessible by meeting with prospective participants through satellite sites within the program's fourteen-county area (Barron, Buffalo, Chippewa, Clark, Dunn, Eau Claire, Jackson, Pepin, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor, Trempealeau, and Washburn). EON works in partnership with a variety of public and private organizations such as human service agencies, schools, businesses, correctional institutions and treatment centers, to identify and serve individuals who are interested in furthering their education and improving their financial circumstances and/or employment options.
