2021 Lingnan W.T. Chan Fellowships

Remote | Part-time | Fully remote


In Summer 2021, each Chan Fellow is assigned to work remotely for a United States-based non-profit organization that addresses a critical social need. With support and guidance from program organizers, the internships are designed to help the Fellows gain practical experience in service work and inter-cultural cooperation. In Fall 2021, each Chan Fellow will select and complete a Service Project with the guidance of their campus program organizers at UC Berkeley or the University of Southern California. Throughout both the internship period and the Service Project period, Chan Fellows will participate in in-depth seminars with other Chan Fellows and cultural exchanges with US-based families and fellow students at their host campuses. 

The deadline to apply is Friday February 5, 2021 at 11:59pm Beijing/Hong Kong Time.

Eligibility: All applicants must be currently enrolled as full-time students at Lingnan University or Sun Yat-sen University at the time of application. Application is open to Lingnan University undergraduate and graduate students; application is only open to Sun Yat-sen University graduate students, or undergraduate students who have been admitted to graduate programs beginning Fall 2021.
