SkillsFuture Study Awards

What is it?

The SkillsFuture Study Awards equip Singaporeans with the skills needed to benefit from quality jobs created by our economy. As Singapore continues our transition to an innovation-driven economy, new skills and competencies among Singaporeans will be in demand. Jobs are also evolving with new functions and existing ones requiring updated skillsets. The SkillsFuture Study Awards encourage Singaporeans to develop and deepen specialist skills needed by future economic growth sectors or in areas of demand. It also supports Singaporeans who already have deep specialist skills to develop other competencies.

Note: SSG will discontinue the SkillsFuture Study Awards on 1 Apr 2022 as part of our broader efforts to review existing schemes and prioritise resources for programmes that deliver stronger manpower development outcomes.

Eligible Singaporeans who wish to apply for the award should submit their applications within the application periods as stated by the respective sector agencies.

Who is it for?

The SkillsFuture Study Awards are for early to mid-career Singaporeans who are committed to developing and deepening their skills in key sectors and have relevant working experience in such sectors.
