SM Foundation scholars enjoy their choice of specialization in Accounting, Information Technology, Engineering and Education.

The scholarship covers full tuition. The scholars also receive monthly allowances and part-time job opportunities during semestral and Christmas breaks.

Upon graduation of the scholars, they receive exclusive job offers with the SM group and engage in other fun-filled activities and enrichment programs throughout.

Fueled by Henry Sy, Sr.’s belief in education–that it is the best defense against poverty–the 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.
