The SM Foundation College Scholarship Program helps provide quality education to deserving underprivileged high school graduates. The program which began in 1993 has produced alumni whom are gainfully employed with prestigious companies both in the country and abroad.
For the school year 2010-2011, SM Foundation has 27 scholars enrolled in 4 universities of Davao- University of the Philippines in Mindanao, Ateneo de Davao University, University of Southeastern Philippines, University of Immaculate Conception and University of Mindanao.
New scholarship grant recipients are John Richard Gonzalez (BSME), John Rey Musa (BSA), Ericka Muriel Chua (BSA), Cherry Ann Cancinco (BSECE), Michelle Ann Espanto (BSCOE) and Jayson Lolo(BSEE).
With the said scholarship program, the SM Group of Companies remain committed to their corporate social responsibility program. This is the company’s means of giving back to the communities who continue to patronize its services after its first store was established more than 50 years ago.
