Oishei High School Scholarships are full tuition scholarships that are awarded to talented, dedicated students of color who want to attend one of 16 participating EdCo high schools. If you have questions or are interested in applying, it is essential that you contact the admissions office of your first-choice high school, rather than calling the Oishei Foundation. EdCo WNY school telephone numbers and website urls are listed in our brochure.

Please do NOT contact the Oishei Foundation to apply for either of these programs. Thank you.
