The TTS Foundation aims to inspire our students and Alumni to engage with their communities and/or give back to those who are less fortunate. The objective of the Alumni Grant is to enable our recent Alumni to contribute to Our World and act as positive role models for our current students. 

Therefore we encourage our Year 13 students and Alumni (undergraduates age 18 to 23 and till 6 month after graduation from Uni) to apply for an Alumni Grant, which awards a matching grant for activities related to CAS (Creativity, Action, Service). Alumni who have previously received an Alumni Grant, will not be eligible to re-apply.

The Grant

The grant is capped at SGD 1000 and each applicant must earn the amount to match the requested grant (present and not future earnings) to help with the cost of the project that the Grant is to support. Alumni will be required to provide evidence that they have earned the amount by providing their pay slips or an official letter confirming employment from employer (showing more recent earnings is preferred) . 

Alumni are invited to submit a clear proposal including details of how their trip / activity helps achieve educational benefits and learning outcomes linked to the Tanglin Learner Profile. Applicants may apply individually or as a group (max 4 but all members are Alumni) and will be invited to present to the Alumni Grant panel. Upon completion of their activity, the expectation is that our Alumni will share what they have learnt with our current students and submit a written report. For more information email the Alumni Office -
