SM Foundation SM Scholars

SM Foundation (SMFI) announced the start of the online application period for the SM Scholarship program for college students for School Year 2021-2022 which will open on January 1 and end on February 28, 2021.

The SM College Scholarship Program started from the vision of the late SM patriarch, Henry “Tatang” Sy, Sr. He believed that if you send one child from an economically challenged family to college, that child would have more opportunities to have gainful employment and later on uplift the economic status of his/her family.

  • Grade 12 graduates from private schools in the areas covered (given that they have Department of Education (DepEd) voucher and finished Junior High from a public school) – General Weighted Average grade of at least 88% or its equivalent for Grade 12 – 1st semester – Total household income of at most P150,000 per year.

The program covers the following field of studies: Computer Science, Information Technology, Engineering (Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Computer, and Electronics), Education (Elementary and Secondary); Accountancy, and Financial Management, among others.

SM Foundation Gathers SM Scholars of Iloilo, Bacolod and Roxas

SM Foundation SM Scholars

SM Foundation scholars in Iloilo, Bacolod and Roxas City have gathered for their very first general assembly last October 20, 2019 at SM City Iloilo. The general assembly is an annual event for all college and technical vocational (techvoc) scholars under SM Foundation to interact and get to know one another, and to meet up with their mentors and benefactors.

The gathering began with a morning mass in SM City Iloilo’s main entrance, the venue where the regular Sunday mass in the mall is held. After the mass, SM Foundation Executive Director for Education Carmen Linda Atayde addressed the crowd, including the regular mallgoers in the mall, and emphasized that The SM Foundation’s Scholarship Program was established by the late Henry Sy Sr. because he believes that education is the best weapon to alleviate people from poverty.

Added Atayde, SM Foundation already has over 3,000 college scholars and over 2,000 technical-vocational (tech-voc) scholars nationwide at present.

The SMFI tech-voc scholars from Don Bosco in Dumangas, Iloilo were also present together with Fr. Dindo Vitug and Fr. Allen Elevado.

The scholars then proceeded to the mall’s cinema 6 for the program wherein the SM Foundation Asst. Vice President Ling Lansang welcomed them and gave a brief overview of the general assembly.

The students were later made to watch short inspirational videos about the life of SM Founder Henry Sy, Sr.

The gathering was also an opportunity for the tech-voc scholars and the college scholars to know each other, as well as meet the alumni who are now professionals in their chosen fields.
