CFL is a Sino-American/Sino-British exchange program. Top students are selected from 50 universities to attend classroom and field training on leadership. These students can also meet professors and students from high-ranking universities in the United States and UK, including Harvard, Columbia, Yale, MIT, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge, and an annual nationwide touring forum.
Luo Qing, the first prize winner from Peking University, said, "This project can help me improve my English and knowledge on leadership. I am also inspired through the exchanges with academics in the top universities of US."
Kenneth Tsang, chairman of CFL, explained the scholarships were awarded to the 20 Chinese students based on their attitudes in life and performance as leaders or members of a team. He said a trip to Oxford will be arranged for next year.
Boya Elite International grooms young people to be business leaders. Its President, Frank Peng Ge said, "In this highly competitive commercial world, graduates need to be well trained to put their academic knowledge to good use and I believe the CFL project and scholarship will help."
