The SHKP-Kwoks' Foundation has offered scholarships at top mainland universities for many years to let talented students of limited financial means pursue undergraduate degrees. The Foundation renewed its commitment to Tianjin University this year and subsidized top mainland students studying at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). It is also helping a number of outstanding Hong Kong and mainland students attend the University of Cambridge.
The Chinese University of Hong Kong Vice-Chancellor Joseph Sung, faculty members and some of the scholarship recipients recently met SHKP Chairman and Managing Director Raymond Kwok to express their gratitude for the HK$25-million scholarship programme that the Foundation has run since 2005 for top mainland students at CUHK.
The Foundation has committed RMB3.6 million (approximately HK$4.5 million) to a scholarship programme at Tianjin University for the 2013 academic term, helping outstanding students of limited means pursue four-year undergraduate degrees. The Foundation has granted a total of RMB7.6 million to nearly 1,000 students since the programme was established in 2009.
The Foundation and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust have been running a scholarship programme since 2004 to help top students with limited means to study at the University of Cambridge. A total of eight deserving students from Hong Kong and the mainland were granted about HK$4 million in 2013, covering full tuition, accommodation and living expenses over three years for doctorate or one year for master's degrees.
