The National University of Singapore and Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers a variety of undergraduate scholarships and awards in recognition of outstanding academic achievements, leadership qualities and special talents. Scholarships available at the University-level may be found here.

The following bond-free scholarships are offered at the Faculty-level for the best and brightest FASS students.


At the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, we firmly believe that all students should be empowered to develop to their full potential and not be disadvantaged by their financial situation.

To be considered for a faculty bursary, students must apply for Financial Aid through the Office of Financial Aid at the Undergraduate Financial Aid portal. If you are eligible for a bursary/scholarship by the faculty, students will be informed by the faculty from September onwards.

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 the academic year, 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.

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.

Overseas Double and Joint-Degree Awards

FASS offers several double- and joint-degree programmes with prestigious universities abroad, and we invite eligible students to apply for the following awards to ease the additional costs of the programmes.
