Emergency Grant and Urgent Needs

NTU COVID-19 Relief Package

At NTU, we stand together to take care of one another and ensure that all members of our community are protected and supported. The University offers various schemes which students facing financial difficulties can apply for. These include public funding and private philanthropic gifts to provide help for affected students.

OneNTU Fund
This fund supports students who are Singapore citizens and permanent residents needing immediate assistance due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Eligible students may get an interest-free advance of up to $1,500, which they will reimburse to the university within two years after graduation. 

NTU Priorities Fund

NTU Priorities Fund addresses urgent needs identified by the University's leadership and its first use will be to offer financial assistance to the neediest NTU students from Singapore and abroad, who are affected by COVID-19 and who have no other recourse for help. Students who receive support from this Fund will pledge to 'pay it forward' within two years after graduation and return the interest-free cash assistance to the University. By nurturing this "evergreen fund" as a university resource to benefit future generations of students, NTU aims to perpetuate the cycle of philanthropy so that future students who need assistance can continue to receive financial aid.

Other forms of philanthropic funds
Funded by philanthropic gifts, this is a one-off grant to assist the neediest students or those who face unforeseen financial crises. 

How to apply

The type and amount of financial aid will depend on each applicant's circumstances and needs, with philanthropic support extended to the neediest students. Priority for assistance will be given to those enrolled full-time at NTU and to those with the most pressing need. All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence. Students needing assistance may apply here and your request will be processed quickly.

The measures presented here may not address everyone's need at this critical time and the request for support may exceed what is possible through available resources. The source and type of financial aid will depend strongly on the individual circumstances of the applicant, with philanthropic support extended to the neediest students. We will continue to monitor and evaluate these dynamic circumstances and take appropriate measures as the situation evolves.
