SM Scholars: On Paying It Forward

"I desire to become an educator, not just to fulfill a dream but also be a blessing to the next generation." - Princess Eunice Motel. 

These inspiring words came from an SM Scholar who is currently pursuing a Degree in Education at the Philippine Normal University. 

Princess Eunice Motel dreams of becoming a teacher since she was a child. "My unwavering commitment to becoming a teacher is directly inspired by the Kidz Life Ministry, a cherished initiative of our church dedicated to teacher children about God's word. I aspire to be a vessel for sharing knowledge, instilling hope, and nurturing a brighter future for the next generation."

Being an SM Scholar, Princess was able to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education at the Philippine Normal University. "PNU is renowned for its ability to nurture exceptional teachers. As I aspire to become an educator, I also strive for greatness and excellence, and there's no better place to achieve that than at PNU."

For Jhona Bolilnas, pursuing a BSE English Major stems from her mother who is also an educator. She opted to enroll at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Valenzuela due to its proximity to her family in Baliuag, Bulacan. 

"Watching, observing, and listening to her, I learned the basics," said Jhona. And it was also her love for reading and writing that she chose to specialize in English. When asked if she has plans to work abroad- "Right now, I want to ensure that my mother enjoys a good life before making such a significant decision."

Krissa May Oquindo is another SM Scholar who is taking up BSE Major in Science at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. "Being an educator has always been my passion. From the moment I set foot on a school campus, the idea of standing in front of students and sharing knowledge excites me. My passion for teaching is rooted in caring for the next generation especially for the youth of our country."

To date, the SM College Scholarship Program has empowered 3,791 graduates who have enrolled in over 120 partner colleges and universities across the country. Scholarship benefits include: full tuition, monthly allowance, part-time work opportunities during semestral and Christmas breaks, job offers from SM Group upon graduation, and engaging activities and enrichment programs. SM also has a tech-voc scholarship program which has produced 4,669 graduates.
