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 K-8 scholarship applicants for the 2021-22 school year is available at all CSF participating schools. To be eligible for a new scholarship in 2021-22:

    • children must be entering Kindergarten for the first time in September 2021 and be 5 years old by December 31, 2021 OR entering grades 1-8 and transferring from a public or charter school.
    • Families must meet the income guidelines and register their students at a CSF participating school.

Please contact the CSF participating school directly to determine your initial eligibility and for application information.

 

Current CSF Families: The requalification applications for the 2021-22 academic year are available. Current families with eligible CSF Scholars should have received an email inviting them to renew their scholarship for the 2021-22 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 2021-22 scholarship application is May 7, 2021.
