Notes:

  1. Gross Household Income (GHI) refers to the total gross monthly income of immediate family members, and non-immediate family members living in the same household.

    Per-capita income (PCI) refers to gross household income (GHI) divided by number of immediate family members, and non-immediate family members living in the same household.

    Definition of “Immediate family members” and “Non-immediate family members”:

  Immediate family members Non-immediate family members
For unmarried students Parents (Regardless of whether the student is living together with the parents) Grandparents, siblings, spouses of siblings, siblings of parents, and any other relatives who are living together with the student
For married/ divorced/ separated students Spouse and all children (Regardless of whether the student is living together with their spouse and children) Parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses of siblings, siblings of parents, and any other relatives who are living together with the student

For unmarried students

Definition of “Income”:
Gross (i.e. including employee’s CPF contribution) income contributions from self-employment, business or salaried employment (which includes basic salary, allowances, overtime pay, etc.), as well as other sources of income (e.g. rent, alimony or maintenance allowance). If bonuses are declared, it should be computed as one-twelfth of the annual wage supplements and bonuses received in the last twelve months. Payments-in-kind, reimbursement for transport and other expenses and National Service (NS) allowance earned by NS men are excluded.

  • Students only need to meet one of the income assessment criteria (either PCI or GHI) to qualify for the bursary
  • If a student meets both the GHI and PCI assessment criteria, the bursary that accords the higher provision will be awarded to the student.
  • Students receiving the bursary may concurrently hold additional bursaries or scholarships (without monthly/annual living allowance) administered by NAFA or offered by other organisations, if they are assessed to be in need of further financial aid.
  • The bursary is tenable on a yearly basis.
  • Students may apply the MOE Bursary and CDC/ CCC Bursary in the same application submitted for the NAFA’s in-house Scholarships, Merit Awards and Bursaries. Refer to www.nafa.edu.sg/scholarships for application details.
  • Students who missed the first application period (refer para 6) may still apply for subsequent rounds of MOE & CDC/CCC bursary applications throughout the year. Details on subsequent rounds of application will be announced on the NAFA Studentnet via Office of Student Affairs.
  • Students who experience changes in their household income due to justifiable unforeseen circumstances (e.g. loss of income due to unemployment) after receiving the bursary, may appeal to be re-assessed for a higher-tier bursary at Office of Student Affairs within the same Academic Year.
