Tuition Grant question

Postby slmkhoo » Mon Mar 20, 2017 5:52 pm

For a Singapore Citizen, is there a maximum limit (in quantum or duration) for receiving the government tuition grant? If a student goes to poly and then to a local university, does he get the tuition grant throughout (eg. up to 7 yrs)? Thanks!

No maximum. From Poly to University, you are eligible for the tuition grant for the duration of the undergraduate programme as the diploma is deem as a lower level qualification:

You are eligible for Tuition Grant Scheme if you have not already taken any Tuition Grant or Singapore Government sponsorship to attain another equal or higher level qualification (including those that you have received for previous uncompleted course, if any).

Thanks. I thought this should be the case, but I couldn't find the info (or the flu I am suffering from has impaired my comprehension!).
