Private College Tuition Scholarships
Say Yes eligible students who are accepted to private colleges and universities that are members of the Say Yes Buffalo Higher Education Compact AND who meet family income restrictions set by those institutions can receive Tuition Scholarships and more from those institutions (some institutions will cover more than just tuition costs, for example, room and board, and/or books). Students with annual family income of $75,000 or less are eligible for these scholarships. At some private institutions, students with family income over $75,000 are eligible.
The amount of these scholarships is determined by the tuition balance that remains AFTER state, federal and institutional aid are subtracted.
If your college is participating in New York State’s Enhanced Tuition Award (ETA), we strongly encourage you to apply for that program.
