The Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses Programme (GATE) is managed by the Funding and Grants Administration Division of the Ministry of Education – Tertiary Education Division.
In keeping with Government's philosophy for developing human capital and entrepreneurship and for permitting access to education for ALL, the government intends to ensure that:
- There are no limitations to accessing quality education.
- All recognized tertiary education programmes will be considered, providing they fulfill the Government's quality assurance requirements.
- All students, including post-graduate students, will be bound by a period of service.
- The period of service will be linked to the value of the grant
Part-time students accessing GATE may apply their current employment experience incrementally as part of their period of national service.
