Knowledge is power. Education is the best way to spread knowledge. SHKP is dedicated to nurturing young people and helping talented mainland students with limited financial means to receive university education through SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation. Southeast University in Nanjing has recently become one of the beneficiaries, while the SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation Law Scholarship continues to support students coming to Hong Kong with encouraging outcomes.
SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation has subsidized over 6,000 financially disadvantaged students to further their studies at universities. This is the first time for Southeast University, widely known for its engineering and architecture studies, to receive subsidies from the Foundation. SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation Executive Director Amy Kwok attended the Southeast University Scholarship programme signing ceremony recently. She expressed the aim of the scholarship programme is to enable the recipients to concentrate on their studies and be able to develop their full potential in engineering, architecture and water conservancy. She also wishes they will have outstanding academic achievements and a promising career development, which will take them over the threshold to climb up the social ladder and contribute to the society.
Since its inception in 2009, the SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation Law Scholarship has supported law graduates and young practitioners from the mainland to complete the one-year Master of Common Law programme at The University of Hong Kong. During their studies, students will understand the rationale behind the Common Law system as they learn about case law, the regulations of interpreting legal texts and the use of legal documents under the Common Law. They will also be trained in the use of analytical methods and critical thinking. As mainland legal professionals develop an in-depth apprehension of the differences between Hong Kong and the mainland regarding their legal systems and principles, it is hoped that the mainland’s legal industry will be significantly enhanced. To date, the Foundation has donated approximately HK$10 million toward the studies of 60 legal talents.
