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: Information for new Teddy Forstmann Scholarships for the 2021-22 school year will be available in the Spring.


Current CSF Families: Requalification applications for the 2020-21 academic year have concluded. As we prepare for the 2021-22 academic year in the Spring, current families with eligible CSF Scholars will receive an email inviting them to renew their scholarship for the 2021-22 academic year.  For questions regarding your application or the program, please call the scholarship hotline at (212) 515-7137.
