Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are millisecond-duration radio signals from unknown cosmic origin. Many models associate FRBs with high-energy astrophysical objects such as magnetars. In this attempt to find counterparts to FRBs, we explore gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) from the Swift and Fermi missions. We first search for spatial correlations between FRB and GRB populations as a whole and then search for a one-by-one correlation between each of the FRBs and GRBs investigated. Temporal coincidences are not considered. To evaluate the significance of any correlation found, we generate background realizations that take into account instrumentally induced anisotropies in the distribution of the sources. Neither study yields any significant counterpart detection. We estimate that less than 4\% of the FRBs are associated with GRBs in the studied samples.
