MOE Tuition Grant

The Tuition Grant (TG) is a grant sponsored by the Government to help you manage the cost of a full-time tertiary education in Singapore. SIT students who are awarded the Tuition Grant will pay subsidised tuition fees as shown on the Tuition Fees page.

Who is eligible to apply?

The Tuition Grant is extended to full-time undergraduates who are Singapore Citizens (SC) and Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR) enrolled in full-time undergraduate courses. International students (IS) from AY2015 cohort onwards are eligible to apply.

SC, SPR and IS students who have received Tuition Grant for studies in degree programmes at NUS, NTU, SIT, SMU, SUTD, SUSS, LASALLE or NAFA, will be eligible for Tuition Grant up to total credits required for graduation at SIT less the percentage of semesters or trimesters of Tuition Grant received at your previous university.

Illustration: Student has studied and received TG for 4 out of 8 semesters before transferring to SIT. Upon transfer to a SIT programme of 180 credits, Student is eligible to 50% (4/8 semesters) of the total credits required for graduation. Hence, Student will receive TG for 90 out of 180 credits taken in SIT.

If you have already fully utilised your Tuition Grant for studies in degree programmes at the above mentioned institutions, you will have to pay non-subsidised fees for your entire programme duration at SIT.


Tuition Grant Bond Obligation

To receive the Tuition Grant, SPR and IS students are required to submit an application, which is subjected to MOE's approval, and sign a Tuition Grant Agreement in which you will be required to work in a Singapore entity for three years upon graduation from SIT.

There is no service obligation for SC students.

Note: Students who are not eligible, SPR and IS students who do not apply for the grant, unsuccessful applicants, or successful applicants who do not sign the Tuition Grant Agreement, will have to pay non-subsidised fees.
