Sands China Ltd. presented MOP1.08 million in ceremonial checks to representatives of seven higher education institutions at a ceremony at The Venetian, as part of the company’s ongoing support of higher education in Macau.
“Sands China is very pleased to support higher education in Macau, as it is essential for nurturing the thriving of local youth,” said Wilfred Wong, president of Sands China Ltd.
Including this year’s donation, Sands China has donated MOP14.6 million for tertiary scholarships and fellowships in Macau since 2006, benefitting more than 1,700 students.
The educational institutions select beneficiary students based on their academic performance and financial status during the previous academic year. This year’s MOP1.08 million donation will be distributed among 108 students to support their studies for the current academic year.
