The Lingnan W.T. Chan Fellowship is a 5½-month program that brings undergraduate and graduate students from China to the United States for a significant intercultural service-learning experience. The program involves complete immersion in U.S. society: fellows live with homestay families and work with nonprofit organizations in the Bay Area. Additionally, fellows attend weekly seminars, leadership training, cultural events, educational excursions, field trips, and other campus-community events. Through these activities, fellows gain first-hand understanding of social issues in the Bay Area and the larger United States, and participate in advocating for disadvantaged communities through public service.

“I will bring what I believe is the best part of the Bay Area back to China with me — that is the beauty and the power of people. I have witnessed how people in the Bay fought for everything they believe is important to their community. That is exactly what we need now in China. To have more and more people voice out loud about the rights they should have and also the things that they believe will make our country great!”
