The SIM GE Bursary provides financial assistance to needy students studying at SIM GE. It is a monetary award based on financial need. In addition, students should have satisfactory academic results.

  • Ceiling for per capita income: S$600 (e.g. Total gross household income = $3000, Total number of household members = 5, PCI = $3000 / 5 = $600)
  • Students must not hold on to any SIM GE sponsorship / scholarship or have not been awarded the SIM GE bursary within the last one year at the point of application.

Value & Tenure of bursary

The bursary quantum is up to $2,000 and is offered dependent on the assessed level of neediness of the applicant. The bursary is tenable for one year.


As the bursary is awarded to help needy students with the payment of SIM course fees, no repayment is required. However, the bursary must be refunded in part or in full if the student discontinues his or her studies.
