Financial Assistance for Special Education (SPED) Schools


SPED financial assistance scheme (FAS) provides financial assistance to Singapore Citizen children in MOE-funded SPED schools.


Your child is eligible for SPED FAS if:

Gross household income <  $2,500/month


Per capita income < $625/month


The benefits under the scheme include a full waiver of school fees, free school attire and textbooks, subsidies for 7 meals per school week and $120 per annum for travelling to and from school via public transport. 


Click here for more information.


Anyone knows if the FAS is easy to apply for? The benefits under the scheme look good but what if a household's income exceeds the limit by a bit? Are there other financial assistance options besides this scheme?
