MOE Financial Assistance
The Ministry of Education provides financial assistance to needy Singaporean students to pay for essential school expenses such as school fees, standard miscellaneous fees, textbooks and school attire.
The eligibility criteria for MOE financial assistance are:
- The family’s Gross Household Income (GHI) does not exceed $2,750 per month; or
- The family’s Per Capita Income (PCI) does not exceed $690. PCI is computed based on GHI divided by the number of household members.

School-based Financial Assistance
VS students who are currently on the MOE FAS but require additional assistance (e.g. meal and/or transport subsidies), as well as those who are not eligible for MOE FAS but require assistance, may approach the school General Office for further information and assistance.
At Victoria School, we have scholarships and bursaries to recognise outstanding students who have achieved performance excellence.
