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.


New Applications: The new K-8 scholarship applications for the 2021-22 school year are closed. Information about new K-8 scholarships for the 2022-23 school year will be available in the Spring of 2022 on this page.


Current CSF Families: Requalification applications for the 2022-23 academic year are now available. Current families with eligible CSF Scholars should have received an email inviting them to renew their scholarship for the 2022-23 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 2022-23 scholarship application is May 6th, 2022.
