The Social Impact Fellowship combines the best elements of enrichment, service learning and internship to create an unparalleled learning experience for high school students interested in innovative solutions to important social issues.

The program brings together CMF nonprofit leadership, Yale University’s model for student-led socially responsible investment (SRI) and the Hong Kong business community to give students hands-on experience and skills development in nonprofit leadership, investment management and the field of medicine.

 

Professional Guidance

The intensive four-week summer program includes three weeks of interactive lectures and skills-coaching delivered by over 40 industry professionals using board rooms as classrooms and a week in China visiting CMF program sites and partner hospitals to witness the positive impact of donated funds.

 

Skills Development

Selected Fellows have a unique opportunity to acquire skills, practice leadership and interact with industry professionals providing excellent preparation for careers in finance, entrepreneurship, medicine and professions in public or private organizations.   

 

Real-life Experience

At the end of the summer,  Fellows continue to collaborate to fundraise and to monitor their Endowment Fund with professional guidance.

 

Double Your Impact

The Social Impact Fellowship is a social enterprise designed to both cultivate the next generation of civic-minded leaders and to have a positive impact on children’s healthcare in Asia. 

 
 

Scholarship bursaries are available for students requiring financial assistance.

"The Endowment Fellowship program at Children's Medical Foundation was a truly transformative experience. For four weeks, we stepped into the real world, dressed up in formal suits, and studied the practical knowledge of non-profit, finance, leadership, and medicine. It was my privilege to be mentored by over 40 speakers that are seasoned professionals working in prestigious corporations. But that's not all. The program went a step further and offered us the opportunity to fundraise and manage a real investment portfolio. Moreover, we learned about neonatal resuscitation and even spent a week traveling to rural China to see the hospitals and facilities that are built as a result of Children's Medical Foundation's initiatives. These experiences are beyond the reach of ordinary education in schools, and I am so grateful that I could embark on this sophisticated and charitable journey with Children's Medical Foundation."
