The SM Foundation Inc. (SMFI) awarded scholarship grants to around 500 incoming college students nationwide at the MAAX Auditorium in Pasay City and in SM Stores or SM malls in various provinces simultaneously on May 8.

In Baguio City, 10 college scholarship recipients, namely Li Anne Estravila, Jorina Bohol, Sian Caleb Domasig, Erlyn Grace Bugaoan, Daniel Esguerra, Alvin Mendoza, Ryan Christian Morales, Raya Christine Marayag, Jaime Lee Bananal, and Cherilyn Acop were oriented and awarded along with their parents and guardians at the training room of The SM Store at SM City Baguio.

“We are very thankful to SM for the opportunity given to us,” said Acop, one of the SMFI scholarship recipients.

She added that she  could not believe she was able to make it as one of the SM scholars and that she is grateful for the blessing given to their family.

Of the 500 new SM college scholars, 35 percent are from the National Capital Region and 65 percent are from the other provinces, bringing the total number of college scholars to 1,200 for school year 2019-2020.

This year also marks another milestone for the program as it expanded its reach to students from Bataan, Daet, and Sorsogon.

SM Foundation provides college and technical-vocational scholarship grants as well as access to primary education through school buildings to help the youth achieve their dreams.

The SM College Scholarship program was founded on SM patriarch, Tatang Henry Sy, Sr.’s belief that education is the greatest equalizer. He believed that if he could help send one child to school, that child can then help his or her siblings finish schooling and together, they can help uplift their family out of poverty. From its inception in 1993, the program has produced 3,274 college scholar-graduates and still continues to provide thousands of Filipino youth the chance for a better future through higher education.

SM Foundation is the social development arm of the SM Group of Companies. Its programs are focused on providing better access to education, healthcare, food security through farmers’ training, shelter, and social inclusion.
