Scholarships and Financial Aid

How Do I Find Money For College?

This information is being provided to assist Fishers High School students and parents in their search for scholarships and financial aid.  

Scholarships are usually based on student GPA, SAT and/or ACT scores, community involvement, and future field of study.  The “stronger” the resume you have, the more scholarships you will be eligible for.  Please keep in mind that scholarships are extremely competitive at all levels.  It is suggested to apply for everything and anything for which you are eligible.  You should put in the time and effort needed to make a superior application.  This will sharpen the competitive edge you will need!  

The internet has become a vital part of scholarship and financial aid searches.  Throughout the “FHS Scholarship Guide” (linked above) you will find references to various websites.  If you do not have access to the internet at home and would like a copy of the scholarship information, please contact Guidance.  

Be sure to continue to look for scholarships because the scholarship lists are updated frequently. New scholarship information is made available on Twitter @FishersGuidance, on Canvas, on the student announcements, on the FHS website, in Naviance and in the Scholarship files in the Guidance Office.    

Please contact your guidance counselor for assistance during the school year. The phone number for Guidance is 317-915-4293.  Please feel free to browse through the resources available in the Guidance Office during our regular office hours on Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.          

It is also important that you contact the colleges and universities where you intend to apply and request information for available scholarships. Typically, the smaller private colleges will offer more scholarships and financial aid to help offset their higher tuition rates.    Fastweb is one of the largest and most complete sources of scholarships available.  This website offers personalized scholarship matching with a database of over 1.5 million    different scholarships worth over 3.4 billion dollars.  These scholarships are offered by thousands of different institutions and organizations worldwide.
