Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS)

Students from needy families can apply for financial assistance through the school. Singaporean families who meet the prevailing criteria will be placed on the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme for the duration of the academic year. Students who do not meet the MOE FAS criteria will be automatically considered for the school-based Financial Assistance Scheme funded by the School Advisory Committee (SAC) Fund.

Application forms for FAS for the following year can be obtained from the General Office around September-October period.

MOE Financial Assistance Scheme (MOE FAS)*

The MOE FAS seeks to help needy Singaporean families reduce their burden in meeting essential school expenses and ensures that no Singaporean child is denied an education due to financial reasons.

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.

For families with GHI which exceeds $2,500, the PCI is computed by dividing the gross household income by the number of household members (e.g. the student, parents, unmarried siblings and grandparents of the child, as well as other dependents living in the same household).
