Dr. William Mong, late Founder of the Group, took educational matters to heart and had a profound understanding about them. In the past few decades, we have contributed significantly to the development of education in the Mainland, Hong Kong and overseas. Aside from setting up scholarships in various tertiary institutions in Hong Kong, SHECF has made out donations to upgrade campus facilities - such as academic buildings, research institutes, activity centres and libraries- of major universities in China, Hong Kong and around the world.

From Learning to Give to Giving to Learn
We strongly believed that providing comprehensive education to the younger generation is essential for the building of a prosperous society. Besides setting up scholarships in tertiary institutions, the Group has been making donations to tertiary institutions to upgrade campus facilities. Projects benefited from this scheme include the Science Block at the Chinese University of Hong Kong; the Academic Building at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University; the Administrative and Office Building of the City University of Hong Kong; and the student hostel at Lingnan University. In 1993, the Fund donated HK$10 million to the William Mong Semiconductor Clusters Laboratory of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology to help research in cutting edge nanotechnology.
SHECF has also been active in supporting the establishment of research and endowment funds. Among them are the William Mong Engineering Research Fund of the University of Hong Kong, which was set up in 1991, and a donation of HK$18 million made to the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1993. In recognition of the Fund's donation of HK$5 million for the setting up of an endowment fund to upgrade the language ability of teachers-in-training, the Main Library of Hong Kong Institute of Education was named after Dr. William Mong.
Through the SHECF, the Shun Hing Group also made significant donations to a number of tertiary institutions in the Mainland and overseas. Beneficiaries include the Student Cultural Activities Centre at Tsinghua University; the Science and Technology Centre at Nanjing University; the Physics Building at Jinan University; the Academic Laboratory Building at Nankai University in Tianjin and the Student Cultural Activities Centre at the National Tsinghua University in Taiwan. In 1996, the Fund donated £1.5 million to Sidney Sussex College of Cambridge University in the UK for the construction of a multi-purpose lecture and conference hall. It was subsequently christened the Mong Man Wai Building and remains the first building at the University named after an Asian.
We believe young people are the future pillars of society. The Shun Hing Group founded the Shun Hing Internship Program (SHIP) and have been co-operating with the Education Bureau for the School-Business Partnership Program (SBPP) over the past few years to provide our younger generation with the opportunities of gaining actual business experience, acquiring workplace skills and knowledge and above all, fostering positive work attitudes and life values, which are beneficial not only to the business world but also the community at large.
Building Ties in China
To promote exchanges and interactions among university students in the Mainland and Hong Kong, SHECF set up the Mong Man Wai Mainland-Hong Kong University Student Exchange Scholarship" (MUSE) in 2007. Its mission was to help build close ties between top universities in China, drive academic excellence, work towards China's advancement in the fields of science and technology, and contribute to the country's prosperity and progress. MUSE was funded by Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund and assisted in building a strong network of relations among the tertiary institutions located in the Mainland and Hong Kong. MUSE was supported by twelve top universities in the Mainland and Hong Kong as follows: Tsinghua University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Nankai University, Zhejiang University, Nanjing University, The University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, City University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Baptist University.
