Your financial need will be determined from the information provided by you via the Online Application System. When applying, you need to provide information such as total family income and number of family members dependent on that income. Mitigating circumstances such as critical/terminal illness, mental/physical disability in the family etc, will also be taken into account when we assess your financial need. To be eligible for consideration, applicant:

  • must be a full-time registered undergraduate student in NUS or has applied for admission to NUS;
  • has a PCI1 of no more than $2,700 for Singaporean/SPR and no more than $1,200 for International students. Singaporeans with PCI1/GHI2 of no more than $2,250/$9,000, respectively, can be considered for a bursary of at least $1,350.
  • must have made satisfactory progress towards completion of his/her academic programme, if applicant is a registered student.
