Tuition Grant by the Ministry of Education

The Tuition Grant is a grant provided by the Government of Singapore to help students manage the costs of full-time tertiary education in Singapore up to a maximum of 10 semesters.

Singapore Permanent Residents and International Students who choose to take up Tuition Grant, are required to sign a Tuition Grant Agreement by which the students will be contractually obliged to work in a Singapore entity for a minimum period of 3 years upon graduation.  

Important Notes:

  • Students have to pay the balance after Tuition Grant subsidy, as well as Annual Supplementary Fees.
  • If a student has received the Tuition Grant at other institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) for previous course(s) which they did not complete, this will be taken into account to determine the number of semesters of Tuition Grant eligibility for the newly enrolled course.
  • Once a student has received the Tuition Grant for the maximum number of semesters, they will no longer be eligible for Tuition Grant and are liable to pay full fees.
