For K-7th grade returning families, applying for Bison Fund assistance is a mandatory requirement before applying for tuition assistance from the school.  In order to receive tuition assistance from CAWNY, you must qualify financially and you must have already applied for a Bison Fund Scholarship before their deadline at the end of February.

The Bison Fund is a privately funded program that offers tuition assistance to low income families.  It is an annual lottery that awards amounts at a minimum of $500 towards a child's education, with the largest grant available at $2,100.00 per child.  This money is allowed to be used at any private grammar school, K through 8, of choice.  Families in all eight counties are eligible to apply, if you meet the financial guidelines.  New applications are due by February 28 for the following school year.  Please visit their website for more information:
