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 participating private schools of all types 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 1st through 8th grades and coming from a public school. Families must also meet the same income guidelines that apply to all other CSF scholarships.


Applications for 2017-2018 school year are now CLOSED.

Families whose applications are currently being reviewed have until Sept 15th to submit financial and supporting documents.
