Sun Hung Kai Properties Limited (SHKP) places great emphasis on nurturing talent and cares about its employees and also their families. The SHKP Group Undergraduate Scholarship was set up nine years ago to provide financial aid for children of staff to pursue their undergraduate studies. The 10 scholarship recipients this year are currently studying medicine, translation, social science, energy and environmental engineering, fashion and textiles, as well as other disciplines at The University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong Shue Yan University and other local institutions.

SHKP Chairman and Managing Director Raymond Kwok recently conferred the scholarships and congratulated the recipients while sharing his learning and life experiences with them. He hopes the scholarships will ease the staff’s financial burdens so that they can focus on serving the Group for long while the recipients can work hard on their studies in pleasant learning environment and campus. He encouraged the recipients to broaden their horizon through participation in extracurricular activities and care for the needy through voluntary work. He also reminded the youngsters to keep exercising and healthy lifestyle while studying hard. To this end, he recommended that they participate in healthy activities such as the 'SHKP Vertical Run for Charity – Race to Hong Kong ICC'.

The scholarship recipients thanked SHKP for its generous care and support to relieve the financial burdens of their families so that they could better assimilate into university life. The recipients all feel blessed for getting help in difficult times. The scholarships are more than a financial aid and also an encouragement to motivate them to seize every opportunity to empower themselves. No doubt they will all certainly put forth their best efforts in their studies and aspire to contribute to society after graduation.

Established in 2010, the SHKP Group Undergraduate Scholarship has to date subsidized over 80 children of staff for providing them with opportunities in university education. Scholarship recipients have majored in medicine, engineering, law, economics and finance, journalism, as well as other disciplines at The University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and other institutions.
