Families may now begin the application process for new scholarships for students entering grades K-8 at CSF participating private schools in 2017-18. 

About the Teddy Forstmann Scholarship Program

The Teddy Forstmann Scholarship Program was established in 2012 in honor of CSF’s late co-founder. Teddy Forstmann scholarships are available at participating private schools of all types in the five boroughs of New York City.
To be eligible for a new Teddy Forstmann scholarship, children must be entering Kindergarten for the first time in September OR entering 1st through 8th grades and coming from a public school. Families must also meet the same income guidelines that apply to all other CSF scholarships.

How to Apply:

STEP 1: Find a school/Pre-application. Go to the Find a Participating School page to find the CSF participating school/s you want to apply to and check their preferred scholarship application process. Please note: for some schools, you will need to apply directly through the school. For most other schools, click here to complete an online pre-application to determine your eligibility and enter your contact information.
STEP 2: Full Application. If you complete the online pre-application and are eligible, you will be invited via email to submit a full online application. You will be required to submit financial documents (1040 tax form and/or other proof of 2016 income), choose a CSF participating school, and register your child at the school before your CSF scholarship can be calculated and awarded. If you apply directly through a school, school administrators will work with you to complete your application and gather the required documents.
STEP 3: Notification. For all families, regardless of your application process, CSF will notify you with a decision about your child’s scholarship award.
