Student Civic Fellowships
(Winter 2019)

HKUST Connect is now calling for applications to Student Civic Fellow positions for Winter Term 2018-19.

Student Civic Fellowships facilitated by HKUST Connect are designed to give students opportunities for community service experience and personal development through taking up the roles of student civic fellows. We expect student civic fellows to be able to connect their fellowship experience to their academic goals by collaboratively defining the relationship with the partner organization and the work in which they are involved. Apart from performing tasks and executing responsibilities, the student fellow should be thoughtful when approaching the fellowship, and reflective as they go through it.

All positions require student fellows to serve on a full time basis throughout the winter break (1 month). Fellows completing the fellowships satisfactorily will receive a subsidy. HKUST Connect will conduct a selection process amongst a pool of applicants and make recommendations based on the applicant's background and the specifications as determined by the organization. Consideration will also be given to the quality of the proposed service position, including its benefit to the organization and the community, and its relevance to the applicant's academic studies and career goals. Final selection will be made by the organization.

Application Procedures:
Students interested in the following fellowship position should email, into one PDF file, the (1) cover letter, (2) CV, and (3) unofficial transcript to HKUST Connect at by 28 October 2018 (Sun). Please name the PDF file in your full name and post reference number, e.g. ChanTaiMan, Peter_AEF125-181008_CoverletterandCV.
