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 2019-2020 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: Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are now open. Please visit the school of your choice for more information on how to apply for a scholarship. Click on Find a Participating School to view the list.


Current CSF Families: Requalification applications for the 2019-2020 academic year have been emailed to qualifying families inviting them to renew their scholarship. For questions regarding your application or the program, please call the scholarship hotline at (212) 515-7137.
