Tuition Grants

Eligible Singapore Citizens who are enrolled in the full-time MOE-funded degree programmes will be automatically awarded a Tier A Tuition Grant, which is the highest level of tuition fee subsidy, Singapore Citizens thus pay the lowest tuition fees. There is no bond obligation.

Eligible Singapore Permanent Residents (SPRs) who are enrolled in the full-time MOE-funded degree programmes may choose to apply for a Tier B Tuition Grant only. Successful applicants are required to work for a Singapore entity for three years upon graduation.

Students who had attended MOE-funded degree programmes but did not graduate from the programme will have to pay the non-subsidised fees for the semesters when they are no longer eligible for Tuition Grant. However, students who have graduated from local universities (NUS, NTU, SMU, SIT, SUSS and SUTD) or LASALLE College of the Arts degree programmes are no longer eligible for the Tuition Grant and will have to pay the full programme fees for their study at the academy.

SPRs who applied for the grant successfully are required to execute a Tuition Grant Agreement with the Government of Singapore, represented by the Ministry of Education (MOE). NAFA will guide matriculated students with their application for the Tuition Grant. It is, however, the student’s responsibility to complete the process of the Tuition Grant Agreement within the deadline set by the MOE. SPRs and international students who do not fulfil the obligations, or do not complete serving their Tuition Grant bonds will be required to pay liquidated damages. Liquidated damages will be computed based on the prevailing Tuition Grant (as advised by MOE) received during the programme of study, plus 10% compounded interest per annum.

There is no Tuition Grant available for international students.
