Since 1993, SM Foundation (SMFI) has been helping deserving and qualified students from low-income households earn their bachelor’s degrees or advance in technical-vocational studies. To date, the SM College Scholarship Program has helped 5,500 scholars nationwide reach their dream of completing their studies.

This 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 help his/her siblings or uplift the economic status of their family.
