Center for Scholar Development

The Center for Scholar Development draws expertise and programming from across the university to help motivated students gain focus and direction in their studies and their lives. It offers an array of activities, workshops, advising, and other opportunities to help students make the most of their Drexel experience and prepare for future career opportunities, graduate school, and/or competitive awards.

Located within the Pennoni Honors College, Center for Scholar Development coordinates three programs: Pennoni Aspire, Aspire Scholars, and the Drexel Fellowships Office.  

Pennoni Aspire

Aspire Scholars

Year-long program designed to provide promising, curious, and motivated Drexel undergraduates an opportunity to further develop and clarify their goals, within a small community of peers and with guidance from alumni in their field(s) of interest. In partnership with Drexel Alumni Relations, we connect Scholars with Drexel alumni and facilitate the creation of strong alumni-student mentoring relationships.

Through small group meetings and individual advising, Scholars gain the tools and opportunities to clarify professional goals, engage more deeply on and off campus, and build deeper personal and professional relationships.
