In mid-April Ambassador Nicholas Platt, USCET Advisory Council Chair presented a Thank You album to Mr. Maurice "Hank" Greenberg in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the USCET scholarship he endowed.
Launched in 2007 with 10 students at Yunnan University, the Maurice "Hank" Greenberg/CV Starr Scholarships (GSS) program awards scholarships based on high academic record, determination to succeed, and a commitment of giving back to the community.
“The Starr Companies will celebrate their 100th anniversary in China in 2019, which gives us an opportunity to reflect on all of our projects over many decades”, said Mr. Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, chairman of the Starr Companies and The Starr Foundation.
“We are particularly proud of the scholarships we have supported in China; they are life-changers for the students and help to create China’s next generation of educated and productive citizens,” he said.
Since it began a decade ago, the program has supported more than 100 students. Scholarships are awarded to freshmen and sophomores each year at Yunnan University in Kunming and Shandong University in Jinan, Shandong.
