THE SM Foundation Inc. (SMFI) is now accepting online applications from highly qualified incoming first year college students for the SM College Scholarship program for School Year 2022-2023 from January 15 to March 15.

The scholarship program has been supporting undergraduate and technical-vocation students since 1993 as envisioned by the late SM patriarch Henry "Tatang" Sy Sr.

Mr. Sy 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.

SM has produced more than 8,000 college and technical-vocation students scholar-graduates to date.
