Fidelity Scholars Program
Individual scholarships designed to help students overcome barriers to success and graduate debt-free from a two-year college, four-year college, or a certificate program. This includes scholarships for students in underserved communities and a suite of ongoing support, including mentorship by Fidelity associates, internship/apprenticeship guidance, and financial education programming.
