SM Foundation presents college scholar-graduates for 2020-2021
SM Foundation, in a virtual gathering, recognized the 219 SM scholar-graduates for 2020 and 2021 — 38 of whom graduated with honors/distinction.
SM Foundation’s Scholarship Program, which was established in 1993, aims to contribute in eradicating the intergenerational cycle of poverty in the country by giving scholarship grants to poor but deserving students. It has already produced almost 7,600 college and tech-voc scholar-graduates — enabling them to uplift the lives of their families out of poverty.
This program is anchored on the belief of SM Group late founder, Henry Sy Sr., that education is the greatest equalizer and 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.
