Student Prize

The Shirin Fozdar Programme will provide scholarships, under the SFP Student Prize, for six pre-university students to attend the Lien Centre for Social innovation's X-SIED: Leadership & Social Innovation Programme, to be held for the first time in summer 2019.

The Leadership and Social Innovation Programme for pre-university students is designed to give participants an introduction to the field of social innovation. Interactive class discussions will encourage critical thought and action to help students explore their own leadership potential. In this intensive course spread over 3 weeks, participants will gain an understanding of what social innovation means, get exposed to experiential exercises and make field visits to social enterprises.

The course intends to give students an immersive experience in learning to think about society’s problems and developing solution-focused strategies to tackle these issues. Mapped closely to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the course will urge students to think how the public, private and social sectors can jointly work towards meeting these goals. Students will work in groups to analyse case studies, review policy documents and/or propose new ideas to solve contemporary issues.
