The University of Newcastle says the $26.4 million Jack Ma Foundation will have a ‘transformational impact on the lives of students and shape the next generation of leaders’.
The university announced the groundbreaking scholarship program last week.
The multi million dollar scholarship was made possible by the generous philanthropic support of Alibaba founder and executive chairman, Jack Ma, through the Jack Ma Foundation.
The foundation will give $26.4 million to fund a first of its kind scholarship program at UON.
Marking the largest philanthropic commitment in UON’s history, and the Jack Ma Foundation’s first philanthropic contribution in Australia, the new scholarship program will pay tribute to Mr Ma’s close personal connection to Newcastle.
When Mr Ma was a teenager, he met Novocastrian Ken Morley, while Mr Morley and his family were on a tour with the Australia-China Friendship Society in Mr Ma’s hometown, Hangzhou, China.
Mr Morley went on to become a highly influential figure in his life, instilling core values and a global perspective that positively impacted Mr Ma’s future and contributed to his personal success.
Mr Ma and Mr Morley remained close friends until Mr Morley’s death in 2004.
“I am very thankful for Australia and the time I spent there in my youth. The culture, the landscape and most importantly its people had a profound positive impact on my view of the world at that time, Mr Ma said.
“To honour the experience and the special relationship I formed with the Morley family, the Jack Ma Foundation is delighted to announce The Ma & Morley Scholarship Program that will inspire, educate and cultivate tomorrow’s leaders.
“Alibaba was built by young people and we are committed to lifting up and empowering students so they can reach their dreams and ambitions.”
Today Mr Ma was joined by the NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian, UON Chancellor,  Paul Jeans, UON Vice-Chancellor, Professor Caroline McMillen, and Mr Morley’s son, David Morley, to announce the scholarship program in Newcastle.
UON Vice-Chancellor, Professor Caroline McMillen, said The Ma & Morley Scholarship Program at UON would have a transformational impact on the lives of students and shape the next generation of leaders.
“Through this remarkable friendship spanning decades, a new generation of talented students will have the opportunity to reach their full personal and professional potential,” Professor McMillen said.
The first round of The Ma & Morley Scholarship Program will be advertised in mid-2017 for students commencing their first year of an undergraduate degree at UON in 2018.
The University of Newcastle has a campus in Port Macquarie.
