SLS Ambassadors Program Opportunity Fund provides financial support for students to participate in the School of Leadership Studies Programs. 


In accordance with the SLS value of Inclusion, we believe that financial status should not be a deterrence to civic and community engagement.


When SLS was a young program, SLS Ambassadors had to fundraise for their operational budget. Now, with the growth of SLS, we are provided a yearly budget for our organizational expenses, leaving behind the money previous Ambassadors had raised. Rather than use these fundraising dollars to cover further SLS Ambassadors expenditures, we chose to put that money towards promoting the mission of the School of Leadership Studies by supporting the SLS Programs and the students therein.


Recipients are service-hearted individuals who are dedicated to personal, community, national
and world change through participation in the School of Leadership Studies Programs. They
have expressed their desire to take part in one of the following SLS Programs:

  • International Service Team
  • Alternative Breaks
  • Weekend Breaks
  • HandsOn Kansas State
  • Wildcat Leadership Challenge
  • International Leadership Association—Case Competition Team
