Bachelor’s Degree Program

The 2024-25 application period is closed. Finalists have been notified by mail. We will announce our new class of Fidelity Scholars in June!

Planning to apply for a bachelor’s degree program in the 2025-26 school year? The Fidelity Scholars Program application will open on October 1, 2024.

The Award

Bachelor’s degree recipients may be funded for up-to four years of study.

As a need-based scholarship, the amount of financial support provided will depend on the cost of attendance determined by the college or university in which you are enrolling.

The Fidelity Scholars Program uses a last-dollar approach. That means your scholarship funds will only be applied after your family contribution and all other financial aid sources have been granted, greatly reducing the need for you to take out loans and incur educational debt related to the cost of attendance.

Eligibility Requirements

The bachelor’s program is open to historically underserved and underrepresented students ages 16-24 who are permanent residents of Colorado, the District of Columbia, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Texas.

  • 2.5 – 3.5 unweighted GPA or GED
  • Pell eligible and/or demonstrate financial need
  • Attend as an incoming 2025-26 freshman at a 4-year accredited college or university in the state you reside

Applicants must come from underrepresented populations and historically underserved communities who have faced systemic barriers and challenges to economic mobility. We encourage students from Black, Latino, Native American (with documented tribal affiliation) and Asian American/Pacific Islander heritage to apply.
