    Ministry of Education (MOE) Tuition Grant Scheme


    To subsidise the high cost of tertiary education in Singapore, the Ministry of Education of Singapore (MOE) hands out approximately $15,900* per annum of tuition grant to all eligible students. The Tuition Grant Scheme provides for a maximum of ten (10) semesters of tertiary education.
