To subsidise the high cost of tertiary education in Singapore, the Ministry of Education of Singapore (MOE) hands out approximately $15,100* per annum of tuition grant to all eligible students. The Tuition Grant Scheme provides for a maximum of ten (10) semesters of tertiary education.
All RP students need to complete the Tuition Grant Application Form during enrolment in order to enjoy the subsidised tuition fee. Non-Singapore Citizen students (that is, Singapore Permanent Resident and International Student) are also required to sign a Tuition Grant Agreement by which the students will be contractually obliged to work in Singapore for a minimum period of three (3) years upon graduation.
Student and sureties’ signature on the Tuition Grant Agreement must be witnessed by MOE officer or a lawyer. The following flowchart details the procedures and actions required.
