How much funding will I get?

The amount of funding a student may receive depends on a variety of factors.

The subsidies covered by the Singapore government for CITREP depend on if you are a Singapore citizen or permanent resident, the category (are you self-sponsored or organization sponsored), type (student, working professional over 40, professional), and training course.

You can find which category you fall into, here.
