Social Impact Fellowship


Pioneering Program

Last year Children’s Medical Foundation launched its first social enterprise The Social Impact Fellowship, a collaboration with Yale University’s Dwight Hall Socially Responsible Investment Fund and the Hong Kong business and professional community to create an innovative service-learning opportunity for high school students.  

The Fellowship aims to cultivate and inspire the next generation of socially responsible leaders and to pioneer a sustainable funding model for CMF programs to improve healthcare for Asia’s youngest and poorest.



CMF are excited to welcome our second cohort of Fellows who join us from Hong Kong, China and the US to learn and gain hands-on experience in nonprofit leadership, socially responsible investing and the fields of health and medicine.

Using Boardrooms as Classrooms, the intensive four-week program includes three weeks of interactive lectures and skills-coaching delivered by industry professionals and a week in China visiting our partner hospitals, program sites and CMF beneficiaries to witness a nonprofit it action.



"This program has an incredibly innovative and interesting model as the foundation places an immense amount of trust on a group of high schoolers to fundraise and invest. Given this privilege, we have the opportunity to do charity on a larger scale and create real change while gaining real-world experience through learning from prestigious figures. The trip to Yunnan had the biggest impact on me. It was one thing to measure CMF’s impact on paper through stories and figures but completely different when I got to see the family CMF has helped and listened to their story in person. This trip not only underscored the significance of CMF’s mission but also motivated us to do more."  Jacquelynn, 2018 Fellow

“From a parent perspective I would say, The CMF fellowship opened a whole new world for my daughter about how the combination of finance and medical knowledge can make an enormous difference in the lives of disadvantaged children. The fellowship provided a real-life opportunity for her to test her passion and to be inspired even more!”  - Kyoko Altman, Head of Sustainable Investments, HSBC Global Markets APAC 

Not only is this a program where we learn about financial investments, law, medicine and fundraising, but more importantly all these practical knowledge and skills link to a bigger picture, where we are constantly encouraged to think in a social minded way about how we can employ our resources in creating something that benefits those who are in need within the greater society.”    Joshua Chen, 2018 Fellow


We look forward to meeting your child through his/her application and to collaborating towards lasting social impact for underprivileged children with urgent health needs.Scholarship bursaries are available for students requiring financial assistance.
