Staley School of Leadership Studies


Prospective Fellows

The Staley School of Leadership Studies, in partnership with K-State Athletics, is excited to offer the Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows program for outstanding K-State undergraduate students.

Throughout this year-long program, Fellows will work on personal development, community engagement, and exercising leadership in their personal and professional lives. Throughout the year, Fellows will participate in four sessions, beginning in April 2019, and concluding in April of the following 2020, with many opportunities for additional engagement in between sessions.

Our hope is that through the Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows program, students have the opportunity to prepare for the transition from college and for engagement as lifelong leaders. The program is open to K-State students entering their final undergraduate year at K-State (Anticipated graduation date of May, August, or December 2020). The Snyder Fellows program is a noncredit leadership development program, offered at no cost to K-State students.
