Each year, we recognize remarkable students who serve in unique, amazing, and inspiring ways. Our Aspirations Fellows represent the pinnacle of achievement in the spirit of Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) through their service and compassion to Virginia Tech and the extended university community.

Aspirations Fellows are students who embody the Aspirations for Student Learning. Being named an Aspirations Fellow is a unique honor and coveted distinction. Selected Fellows have the opportunity to impact the student experience, mentor students in the early stages of discovering the aspirations, receive a distinction cord for graduation, and be celebrated at an annual spring induction ceremony.
