Chiang Chen Industrial Charity Foundation Scholarship
On the Donor
The Chiang Chen Industrial Charity Foundation (蔣震工業慈善基金) was established in 1990 by Dr. Chiang Chen, founder and chairman of the Chen Hsong Holdings Limited. Dr. Chiang came to Hong Kong from his hometown in Shandong Province, China in 1949. Because of his hard work and devotion to the manufacturing industry, he is recognized as prominent leader in the industry and a much admired and respected role model for industrialists in China. Today, the Chen Hsong Group is one of the leading manufacturers of plastic injection moulding machines in the world and operates diversified business globally.
Dr Chen strongly believes in "Enriching the Livelihood of People by Industry, Strengthening the Country through a Prosperous Society". He therefore donated all his shares of the Chen Hsong Group to establish the Chiang Chen Industrial Charity Foundation.
Since 1980, Chen Hsong Machinery Company Ltd. has established scholarships to benefit students in the Departments of Electrical and Electronic, Industrial and Manufacturing Systems and Mechanical Engineering. Starting from 1998, the Foundation agreed to support two scholarships for a student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and to a student in the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering. In 2008, the scholarship was renamed from Chen Hsong Industrial Scholarships to Chiang Chen Industrial Charity Foundation Scholarship.
