SM Foundation Inc. (SMFI) announced the start of the online application period for the SM College Scholarship program for School Year 2021-2022 which opened on January 1 and will end on February 28, 2021.
The SM College 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 lift the economic status of his/her family.
SM Foundation, through its scholarship program, provides deserving and qualified students access to college education and technical-vocational studies since 1993. To date, SMFI has supported almost 5,500 scholars nationwide.
The SM scholarship program is open to the following: Grade 12 public high school graduates from schools in the areas covered; Grade 12 graduates from private schools in the areas covered (given that they have Department of Education (DepEd) voucher and finished Junior High from a public school), General Weighted Average grade of at least 88 percent or its equivalent for Grade 12 – 1st semester and total household income of at most P150,000 per year.
The program covers the following field of studies: Computer Science, Information Technology, Engineering (Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Computer, and Electronics), Education (Elementary and Secondary); Accountancy, and Financial Management, among others.
