The BISON Scholarship Fund
The BISON Scholarship Fund is a privately funded partial tuition assistance program for low-income children living in the eight counties of Western New York: Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Wyoming and Orleans. Families awarded a BISON scholarship are able to send their K-8 grade child to the private or Catholic school of their choice.
Assistance is awarded by an annual lottery drawing each May. Awards are based solely on need; they are not academic or race-based scholarships. In order to process your application more efficiently, please do not submit application to the school. If you have questions or need more information, Contact Cindy McDonald at 716-854-0869 or visit their website http://bisonfund.com/.
The Catholic Tuition Grant Program
The Catholic Elementary School Tuition Grant Program (CTGP) is offered to families who are deemed “active parishioners” of a Diocese of Buffalo parish without a school who enroll their child(ren) in a parish affiliated Catholic school in the Diocese of Buffalo. Families that meet the criteria for “active parishioners” are considered “parishioners” for the purpose of school tuition charges once the Parishioner Verification Form located on the last page is completed by the family, signed by their parish pastor and returned to the parish affiliated Catholic school. Families that do not meet the criteria of active parishioner will not qualify for the Tuition Grant and will be required to pay non-parishioner tuition rates.
Families that would like to be eligible for CTGP must be registered parishioners at a Diocese of Buffalo parish that does not have its own Catholic elementary school. During each quarter, the family must meet the criteria for an “active parishioner” to be eligible for the “parishioner” tuition rate. The family must have their child(ren) registered at a parish Catholic school. The parents of the student(s) should complete the Parishioner Verification Form, located on the last page of the booklet, and submit the form to be reviewed and signed by the pastor of the parish where they are registered. They must meet the criteria for an “active parishioner” throughout the school year.
If the family meets the criteria established for an “active parishioner”, the pastor of their parish should sign the Parishioner Verification Form, retain the original document and send one copy of the form to the Catholic school where the child(ren) are registered and provide one copy to the family. The pastor will verify the family’s “active parishioner” status by phone in the first week of December, March and June.
