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 CSF participating private schools 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 grades 1 – 8 and transferring from a public school. Families must meet the income guidelines and register their students at a CSF participating school.


CURRENT CSF FAMILIES: Requalification applications for the 2023-24 academic year are available as of February 1st, 2023. Current families with eligible CSF Scholars should have received an email inviting them to renew their scholarship for the 2023-24 academic year. Though priority is given to returning families, scholarships are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. The deadline for current, eligible families to complete their 2023-24 scholarship application is Friday, May 5th, 2023.


FAMILIES NEW TO CSF: Information on new scholarships for the 2023-24 school year will be available on this page in Spring, 2023.
