MARILAO, Bulacan — SM Foundation recently awarded over 500 incoming college students nationwide with scholarship grants at the MAAX Auditorium in Pasay City and in SM Malls in various provinces, simultaneously.

Of the 500 new SM college scholars; 35% are from the National Capital Region (NCR) and 65% are from the other provinces, bringing a total number of college scholars to 1,200 for the school year 2019 – 2020. This year also marks another milestone for the program as it expanded its reach to students from Bataan, Daet, and Sorsogon.

The SM College Scholarship program is grounded on SM patriarch, Tatang Henry Sy, Sr.’s belief that education is the greatest equalizer. He believed 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. From its inception in 1993, the program has produced 3,274 college scholar-graduates and still continues to provide thousands of Filipino youth the chance for a better future through higher education.

SM Scholarship exam and interview in Bulacan Malls was held last March 06 in SM City Marilao, March 07 in SM City San Jose Del Monte and March 08 in SM City Baliwag. (RONDA Balita Online News)
