Tuition Grant (TG) Scheme
The Tuition Grant (TG) Scheme is offered by the Government of Singapore to international and Singapore permanent resident students pursuing a course of study at Yale-NUS. The TG Scheme offers a subsidised tuition rate and comes with a three-year work obligation upon graduation. In order to satisfy the work obligation, students must work for a Singapore entity or an overseas affiliate while remaining on the Singapore payroll. All earnings within the three-year work period will be kept by the student.
Students who opt to take up the TG Scheme will be required to sign the Tuition Grant Agreement. Further information will be provided upon confirmation of enrolment at Yale-NUS.
Students who opt not to take up the TG Scheme will be required to pay unsubsidised fees, which includes the relevant Supplementary Fee, but will not have a work obligation upon graduation.
Note that Yale-NUS financial aid does not apply to the Supplementary Fee. A loan, however, is available to qualifying students for the same amount. Further details about the loan and eligibility can be found here.

The Financial Aid Application Process
Applying for Financial Aid is easy. Once shortlisted for an admission interview, applicants will have access to the Financial Aid Application page through the Yale-NUS Applicant Status Page. Deferred matriculants (those serving National Service or on a gap year) will receive notification of the opening of the Financial Aid Application in January of their intended matriculation year.
