Founded in 1987, Early Identification Program celebrates 30 Years of Inspiring Excellence Through Education in 2017. EIP has helped more than 1,600 students gain access to higher education and educational resources. It is our EIP Alumni who make our history so special, and the promise of our incumbent EIP Students makes our future so bright. EIP invites ALL of its alumni back to George Mason University  for Alumni Weekend to celebrate the legacy of the program.
