For children of staff, the SJM Scholarship Programme awards 10 scholarships annually to students, who are each awarded MOP20,000 until they finish their studies (up to five years). In addition, two best performing students in the past academic year are selected and each presented with an additional award of MOP5,000. The Programme, since its establishment in 2005, has witnessed the graduation of 91 students, some of whom have furthered their masters studies. The Alumni Association of Scholarship for SJM Employees’ Children was established in 2012, aiming to promote SJM’s core value of “from society, to society”, and encourage active participation by alumni in social services for the benefit of the community.
