Alumni Brothers Contribute HK$2 Million to Establish Emergency Fund
Alumni brothers and entrepreneurs Terry Tsang, 2004 BEng in Civil and Structural Engineering and 2006 MPhil in Civil Engineering, and Terence Tsang, 2006 BEng in Computer Science (Information Engineering), have donated HK$2 million to establish a Student Emergency Fund. The generous gift will provide financial assistance for HKUST students facing unforeseen financial emergencies that could disrupt their studies.
The two brothers know at first hand how unexpected personal tragedy can impose financial difficulties. Their father, the sole breadwinner of the family, passed away while they were studying at HKUST. Despite immediate financial hardship, they were able to continue their university education through the assistance of the Student Affairs Office emergency fund, and have been keen to support other students in need since finding success in the business world. Terry is the Co-Founder and CEO of mobile game developer Madhead while Terence is Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of the same company.
The contribution, made to the HKUST Alumni Endowment Fund, brings the brothers’ accumulated donations to HK$3 million.
