The SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation is committed to training talented people for the nation and it sponsors young scholars to study in local institutions or abroad with scholarships and awards. Representatives of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) visited the Foundation at SHKP head office to report on the progress of the CUHK Scholarship Programme.
Foundation Executive Director Amy Kwok said: "This scholarship programme has been a success thanks to the outstanding CUHK staff and their commitment to helping students, regardless of their backgrounds. The recipients have also shown diligence in their studies, which is essential for success." Some scholarship recipients spoke of their goals. Medical student Tsui Hon-yeung aspired to be a doctor with Médecins Sans Frontières and do humanitarian work in disadvantaged areas, while business student Chu Yat-ho wanted to be a business consultant to broaden his horizons and critical thinking. Chan Chung-hin majors in insurance and loves mathematics, and he serves the community with his knowledge and skills during his spare time.
CUHK Council Chairman Leung Nai-pang thanked the Foundation for its support and praised its commitment to helping students in Hong Kong and on the mainland receive an education despite financial difficulties. Pro-Vice Chancellor Fok Tai-fai looked forward to further cooperation with the Foundation to nurture more professionals and future pillars of society.
