This is a very challenging time for all of us. We hope this list of resources will be helpful to you and your family. Please feel free to email us at info@scholarshipfund.org with resources that we missed and have worked for you! CSF will continue to share and update the list over the next few weeks and months.

 

Also, please remember that CSF’s office is closed for now, but rest assured we are still processing your 2020-21 scholarship applications. If you have not already done so, please complete your application online and upload supporting documents through the application portal or submit supporting documents via email. You can call us with scholarship questions at 212-515-7137.

 

Meanwhile, please stay safe!
