Financial Assitance Schem
The MOE FAS is to help needy Singaporean families reduce their burden in meeting essential school expenses and to ensure that no child will be denied an education due to financial reasons.
Benefits under MOE FAS
The benefits provided under the MOE FAS are tabulated below:
Eligibility Criteria for MOE FAS
a. The family’s gross household income (GHI) does not exceed $2,500 per month; or
b. The family’s per capita income (PCI) does not exceed $625 per month.
The PCI is a parallel assessment criterion to enable students from larger families to benefit. For families with GHI which exceeds $2,500, the PCI will be computed based on the GHI divided by the number of household members. Household members include the student, his/her parents, unmarried siblings and grandparents, and other dependents living in the same household.
Other forms of financial assistance would be rendered on a case-by-case basis. Students who wish to apply for the scheme can obtain the application form from the General Office. They are to submit the application form together with the relevant documents to the school. Announcements will be made in end October / early November for application for the following year.
