Launch Fishers High School Fellowship

About the Fellowship

The purpose of the Launch Fishers High School Fellowship is to discover and develop future entrepreneurs. After applying and being selected for consideration by the host companies, students participate in a two day Entrepreneurial Bootcamp hosted by Launch Fishers. At the conclusion of bootcamp, students interview for a chance for an 8-week paid summer internship with host companies.

Five positions are available. See the flyers below for important dates and details.

Students must be a resident of Fishers, attend either Hamilton Southeastern High School or Fishers High School, and be currently enrolled as a high school student (freshman to graduating senior).

Applications for the 2023 Program have CLOSED! The deadline to apply was Friday May 12th at 11:59pm.



Did this program change from 2022, and if so, how?

Yes. We restructured the program for this summer to put a greater emphasis on project-based learning opportunities and creating a stronger cohort-style experience. With a smaller number of internships, we can sharply focus our efforts on ensuring interns get top-notch, quality outcomes.

In addition, we also changed our Bootcamp Week and Interview Day. Bootcamp is now two days (Tuesday May 30th and Wednesday May 31st). Interviews are scheduled for 20 minutes and students will interview only with the companies who selected them for consideration for the program.


How does the process work?

Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Students apply for the program and can select up to three (3) internship opportunities to apply for directly.
  2. At the conclusion of the application period, host companies will receive the applications for students who applied for their internship opportunity. Each host company can select up to 3 students to consider for their internship.
  3. Selected students will be notified which internship opportunities they are in the running for and will participate in a two-day Entrepreneurial Bootcamp at Launch Fishers on Tuesday May 30th and Wednesday May 31st.
  4. Interviews for internship opportunities will take place on Thursday June 1st. Students will interview with the company/companies who selected them for consideration.
  5. After completing all interviews, both the students and host companies will select their top pick(s) for internships and, using a mutual pairing process, students will be placed in internships. Communication will be sent to students and host companies the same day in the evening following interviews.
  6. Hired students will complete their employment paperwork at Launch Fishers on Friday June 2nd so that internships may begin as early as Monday June 5th.


How many internships will there be?

There will be a total of five (5) internships available for students.


How much do the internships pay? How many hours are they for?

Interns will be paid $15/hour. Each internship can run for a total of 160 hours over 8 weeks. That breaks down to approximately 20 hours per week, but most companies are flexible with schedules to accommodate vacations/other activities.


When is the deadline to apply?

All applications must be submitted by no later than Friday May 12 at 11:59PM. Students will be notified about program acceptance by Friday May 19th.
