Congratulations to the 2019-20 Aspire Scholars!

November 18, 2019

The Center for Scholar Development is happy to announce our 2019-20 cohort of Aspire Scholars. These fifteen Drexel sophomores from across the university have been selected based on their academic achievement, engagement, and demonstrated potential for success at Drexel and beyond. Through the Aspire Scholars program, they will further clarify their goals, participate in personal and professional development activities, and gain the tools to expand their network and build deeper relationships. We are excited to see them grow and look forward to supporting them in their future endeavors!

The Pennoni Honors College is dedicated to fostering innovation, creativity, and intellectual exchange among undergraduates at Drexel University. The Aspire Scholars Program is rooted in these values. Following an optional nomination process and open application period, students are evaluated on a basis of their intellectual curiosity and openness, engagement in areas of interest, and desire to reflect on and take steps toward realizing longer term goals. This year, our most competitive year yet, we received over 65 applications from which 20 finalists were selected for interviews with program staff and members of the Pennoni Honors College.

The final fifteen students selected as Aspire Scholars are an impressive group drawn from across the university. They bring different perspectives and backgrounds to the program and are eager to learn from one another and grow their professional network.
