SM Foundation, the corporate social arm of SM, awarded scholarship grants to 250 college freshmen for the school year 2021-2022 on Saturday.
The event was broadcasted live on SM Foundation’s Facebook page.
Of the 250 new SM scholars, 40 percent are from the National Capital Region and 60 percent are from the provinces across the country. This puts the total current number of SM college scholars at more than 1,300.
Under the flagship program of SM Foundation, scholars enjoy full tuition and miscellaneous fees subsidy. They also receive monthly stipends and are exposed to various enrichment activities and job opportunities at SM malls during their semestral or Christmas breaks.
After graduating, they also have the chance to land their dream jobs in companies within SM.
SMFI, through its scholarship program, has provided deserving and qualified students with access to college education and technical-vocational studies since 1993.
To date, SMFI has produced more than 8,000 scholar-graduates.
