2022 Lingnan W.T. Chan Fellowships

California | Full-time

Apply

For the 2022 Program, the Chan Fellowships will be organized by two host institutions: UC Berkeley and the University of Southern California (USC). Each Chan Fellow is assigned to work at a non-profit organization in California (either the Bay Area, or greater Los Angeles area) 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. Fellows live in American homes for the full duration of the program. They also attend seminars on non-profit organization management and community development, cultural events, as well as mandatory weekly reflection meetings while in the United States.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday, December 14, 2021 at 11:59pm Beijing / Hong Kong Time.
