MOE Independent Schools Bursary
Application for 2017 MOE Independent Schools Bursary
Singapore citizens who wish to apply for the MOE ISB Scheme for year 2017 may submit their applications. MOE ISB is open only to Singapore citizens.
Application forms are also available from the Administration Office and Parent’s Portal.
Applications may be made throughout the year as exigencies of each family’s financial situation demand. However, each MOE ISB award is effective from the month the application is approved and may not be back-dated.
Please ensure that the ISB application is accompanied by all relevant documents required by MOE. Please refer to the Checklist for documents required. Omission may result in a delay in the processing of the application and in turn, a delay in the awarding of the ISB. Students should pay the full amount of school fees until their application for the ISB 2017 has been processed and have received written advice from the School.

- Pacific Healthcare Bursary
- The ACS Class of 78 Bursary, The Earnest Lau Bursary, and The Hee Chit Lim and Chu Yung Yung Bursary

The ACS (Independent) Pocket Money Fund also helps to supplement students’ own recess/lunch money.
