The Lingnan W. T. Chan Fellowships Program provides challenging educational and leadership opportunities for Chinese students through service learning and intercultural experiences in the United States.

The Lingnan W.T. Chan Fellowships commemorate Professor Wing-Tsit Chan, former Dean of Lingnan University and distinguished Professor of Chinese Philosophy and Religion. They also celebrate the Lingnan motto "Education for Service."

Lingnan W.T. Chan Fellows are selected on the basis of their commitment to service as well as their maturity, flexibility, experience, personal initiative and creativity. After selection and orientation, each Fellow is assigned to work at a non-profit organization in the United States 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 intercultural 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.

Upon selection, W.T. Chan Fellows are assigned to UC Berkeley, hosted at their Public Service Center, or to USC, hosted at their US-China Institute.
