Apply Now for SM College Scholarship 2020

Just like any other institution, the famous SM also has scholarship programs to individuals who have the interest in continuing their studies but do not have the capability to do so. Henry Sy, Sr., the founder of the most known retail brand here in the Philippines, said that the best defense against poverty is education and that is why SM will provide technical-vocational and college scholarship grants to those who want them.
