In line with the Building Homes with Heart philosophy, the SHKP-Kwoks’ Foundation established by Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) has always spared no effort in nurturing the younger generation.  In addition to promoting the educational development of Hong Kong, the Foundation also provides financial assistance to underprivileged mainland students so they can pursue their studies.  It set up a scholarship programme at Tianjin University in 2009 to help outstanding students with limited financial means to complete their four-year university studies.  To date, the total amount of donations granted has topped RMB10 million, benefitting more than 1,700 students.

In an effort to extend their partnership, SHKP-Kwoks’ Foundation Executive Director Amy Kwok and Tianjin University Alumni Association Chairman (Former Party Secretary of the University) Liu Jianping recently signed an agreement for the fourth phase of the scholarship programme. 

Helping disadvantaged students strive for progress

Liu Jianping expressed his gratitude to the SHKP-Kwoks’ Foundation for its trust and donation on behalf of the University and remarked that the scholarship programme has truly borne fruit.  He said: “With the help and encouragement of the scholarship over the years, diligent needy students have graduated with flying colours and have enjoyed promising prospects and careers in various fields.  The scholarship enables underprivileged students to not only improve better lives but also to give back to their alma mater as well as to society.”

Committed to nurturing talent to give back to society

Amy Kwok congratulated Tianjin University on its exemplary standing in the recent “Double First-Class Initiative” published by the State Ministry of Education.  The University’s Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Technology, Management Science, and Engineering courses are all classified as first-class disciplines.

Ms. Kwok said she was encouraged by Tianjin University’s academic excellence, which she believes will nurture talent for the country’s Belt and Road Initiative.  She added: “The SHKP-Kwoks’ Foundation believes that when young people are given access to university education, they can maximize their talents and contribute to the nation’s development with their knowledge in the future.”

The SHKP-Kwoks’ Foundation is committed to nurturing talent in Hong Kong and on the mainland, and has been helping outstanding students with limited means complete their undergraduate studies since it was established in 2002.  The Foundation offers scholarships at renowned institutions including The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Peking University, Zhejiang University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University, Hunan University, Sun Yat-sen University and Tianjin University as well as in regions such as Zhongshan in Guangdong Province and Dingxi in Gansu Province.  It also subsidizes students to study abroad or join overseas exchange programmes to broaden their horizons.  More than 20 provinces have benefitted from over 30 training schemes sponsored by the Foundation.
