Over 1,000 alumni from different parts of the country recently gathered at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City to celebrate the 25 years of the SM Scholarship program. The assembly started with a series of inspirational talks from SM Foundation trustees led by SM Investments Corp. executive director Harley T. Sy.

To date, SM Foundation supports 4,000 college scholars and 2,000 technical-vocational scholars in different parts of the country who are enrolled in partner schools. SM scholars enjoy a choice of specialization in accounting, information technology, engineering and education; full tuition, monthly allowance, part-time job opportunities during school breaks, job offers with the SM group upon graduation, and fun-filled activities and enrichment programs.
