Siegfried Fellows Program

Lead Change. Be Nimble. Cultivate Character. 

The Siegfried Fellows is a highly selective, cohort-based, 10-month immersive program for student leaders. Siegfried Fellows programming is designed to expand and deepen understanding of oneself as a leader, promote connections with and learning from regional leaders, and inspire initiative for positive impact. Siegfried Fellows are emerging leaders who seek to develop and apply entrepreneurial mindsets, such as resiliency in the face of setbacks and creative problem solving, while also cultivating character virtues in themselves.

The Siegfried Entrepreneurial Leadership Fellows has provided me with opportunities to explore and delve deeper into my own leadership in a supportive environment of fellow students and mentors. Being a part of this program has also expanded my perspective on leadership and what it means to be a true leader.
