What is the BISON Fund?
Founded in 1995, the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund is a privately funded tuition assistance program for low-income elementary school children to attend private elementary school of choice. BISON’s mission is to provide low-income parents a full range of choices for their children’s education. Families awarded a BISON grant are able to enroll their child in a private school of their choice in any of the 8 counties of Western New York. Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, BISON will offer its 8th grade graduates tuition assistance in high school.
