The Fung Scholars New York Chapter was officially established in 2014. Members of the chapter include both students and professionals who are either studying or working in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. The Chapter brings scholars together through fun gatherings as well as community service projects. The Chapter aims to connect local Fung Scholars together and making them feel like they have a family even when they are away from home. Fung scholars can also receive mentorships from senior graduates.
