Singapore Citizens will be automatically awarded a Tuition Grant without the need for application. There is no bond obligation required of Singapore Citizens. For all non-Singaporean students (including Singapore Permanent Residents), in exchange for the grant received under the Tuition Grant Scheme, they are required to apply for Tuition Grant (subject to MOE's approval) and sign a Tuition Grant Agreement in which they will be contractually obliged to work in a Singapore entity for three (3) years upon graduation.

* Tuition Grant Scheme is only extended to eligible Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents studying the approved MOE-subsidised undergraduate programmes at these institutions.
** For Singapore Citizens studying the Technical Diploma courses at ITE only.
