The SM Foundation offers the SM College Scholarship to interested Filipino students interested to pursue any 4 or 5 year college courses. The program was created to help the youth reach their full potential and achieve their dreams. Based on their experience of over two decades offering the SM College Scholarship, when one member of the family graduates from college, the scholar helps another sibling to go to school. The scholar actually serves as the main key and means for the family to lift themselves out of poverty.
