FINANCIAL ASSISTANT SCHEME

The MOE Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) is to help needy Singaporean students pay essential school expenses and to ensure that no Singaporean child will be denied an education due to financial reasons.  Students who are eligible for the MOE FAS have to apply using the prescribed MOE FAS application form which is available from the school or can be downloaded from the MOE website.  Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

Application for Computer Under IDA’s NEU PC Plus Programme

The NEU PC Plus Programme administered by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) offers students from low income households the opportunity to own a new computer at a subsidised price. MOE has collaborated with IDA to reach out to potential beneficiaries of the NEU PC Plus Programme, by including an item in the MOE FAS application form for parents to indicate whether they wish to apply for a computer under the programme if they had not benefited from the programme in the last 3 years. For those who wish to apply and their application for MOE FAS is approved, the school will give them the simplified IDA form for the  NEU PC Plus Programme to complete and help them send to the relevant lead agency to process.

 The MOE FAS Application form can be obtained from our website link at “Parents/Downloadable Forms”, MOE website or school Admin Centre.
