Financial Assistance Scheme
MOE has many schemes to support the educational needs of Singaporean students especially those from low-income families. The table below summaries the criteria and the benefits of the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme as well as School Advisory Committee Financial Assistance Scheme.
children studying in different schools need to complete only one application
form for all school-going Singaporean children and submit it to the school of
any child. The school receiving the application form will process the
application. If the application meets the MOE FAS income criterion, all the
children indicated in the form will be granted the MOE FAS. The school will
inform the parents of the outcome via a letter. If your child’s MOE FAS
application is approved by the other school, parents are required to provide us
a copy of the successful letter.
unsuccessful MOE FAS applications, the school will assess your child/children
studying in our school for their eligibility for school-based FAS. For the
student’s siblings, parents will have to approach the other schools directly
for school-based financial assistance.
