The goal of the SM Scholarship is to break the poverty cycle in the Philippines by providing educational grants to deserving but underprivileged students. To maintain this aim, SM Foundation has welcomed new scholars from all throughout the nation this year.
The SM College Scholarship is a two-decade program that firmly believes that once a family member graduates from college, he or she can now assist his or her siblings in attending school in order to serve and lift their families out of poverty.
