FASS Scholarships

The following bond-free scholarships are available for the Faculty's brightest students, in recognition of their academic strengths and pursuit of excellence.


FASS Bursaries

To be considered for a faculty bursary, students must first have been offered and accepted a NUS Bursary. If found eligible for a bursary/scholarship by the faculty, students will be informed by the faculty from September onwards. If you are offered a bursary/scholarship by both the OFA and the faculty, students will be informed if they are allowed to hold both awards concurrently. The awards’ value may be adjusted, or the award with the lower value may be withdrawn.


Financial Aid

Students in need of financial aid should first approach the University’s Office of Financial Aid, which offers a comprehensive package of financial aid combining study loans and bursaries. If you wish to be considered for the faculty bursaries and scholarships for AY2017/18, please apply for Financial Aid and/or Donated Scholarships through the Office of Financial Aid (OFA) at the Undergraduate Financial Aid portal by 1 April 2017.

Please note that you will not be able to indicate the specific scholarships and bursaries that you are applying for on the portal. Students who meet the eligibility criteria for the respective FASS scholarships and bursaries will automatically be considered for the awards, as well as those offered by the Office of Financial Aid at the University level.

FASS Emergency Aid is also available for students who, through sudden changes in their financial circumstances, require aid urgently and cannot wait for the next Financial Aid application.
