Fisher alumni give back. Their generous contributions, along with those from corporate and foundation partners, allow us to proudly offer scholarship opportunities to current Fisher College of Business students.
Note that our scholarships are competitive, modest, and in most cases, nonrenewable. Receipt of a Fisher scholarship in a previous academic year does not guarantee an award for 2022-2023. All Fisher recipients are selected from the Fisher College Merit and Need-Based Scholarship Applications, found below.
All Fisher students are encouraged to also complete the University Application for Special Scholarships . The priority application date is February 1, 2022 for all University students (application available on or after August 1, 2020).
