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 2018-2019 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 2018-2019 are now available. The deadline to complete the Requalification application is May 1st.


CSF will notify approved families in writing with their scholarship award amount.
