  2. Post-Secondary Education Account (PSEA) – RVRC students who are Singapore citizens can also apply to the PSEA Scheme for compulsory College fees (i. e. accommodation and meal plans). Please refer to this webpage.

Important Points to Note

  • For Full-time undergraduate students, please submit the applications for NUS financial aid immediately through the Office of Financial Aid portal after applying for admission to NUS.
  • Upon receipt of financial aid application, applicants will be automatically considered for all other NUS bursaries, where eligible.
  • Students offered a bursary/scholarship by both the OFA/Faculty and RVRC, will be informed if the awards can be held concurrently. If not, the award with the lower quantum will be automatically withdrawn.
  • If you missed the application deadline for bursary and college grant but are in need of financial assistance, please login to the NUS Undergraduate Financial Aid Portal, state the reason(s) for your late application and proceed to apply accordingly.
