Aspire Fellows is a selective cohort program for senior business majors who want to go beyond the traditional classroom experience.
Selected students participate in a University-sponsored 10-month, paid internship and complete classes in a streamlined format with their cohort. In addition, students receive customized professional development from both employers and College of Business staff. Students integrate the required coursework, real-world experience, and professional development with a one-month multi-country global trip in which they will visit businesses and interact with executives.
The program runs for an academic year (summer, fall, and spring) and is open to rising seniors who are declared business majors. The College of Business receives applications in the fall before the May term in which the student will begin. (See below for admissions requirements, process, and timetable.) Special scholarship funding may be available for participants.
Our student has been a valuable asset to our department and has become an integral part of our work-flow. Additionally, her questions challenge our underlying perceptions. — Paul Scalisi, VP Managed Care, Lifepoint
