Applications open for Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows

Undergraduate students who will enter their final year at K-State during the 2020-21 academic year are invited to submit an application for Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows. Snyder Fellows will be involved in unique opportunities for personal leadership development as they prepare for life after graduation.

In addition to engineering the greatest turnaround in college football history, Coach Bill Snyder has been a champion of developing leaders—both on and off the football field. It is because of this commitment that the Staley School of Leadership Studies, in partnership with K-State Athletics, is thrilled to offer the Snyder Leadership Legacy Fellows program, a leadership development program that honors his work in developing a family of leaders.
