The Singapore SIkh Education foundation

The Singapore Sikh Education Foundation (SSEF) is a self-help non-profit organisation focusing on providing Punjabi Language education for pupils in mainstream schools in Singapore. SSEF Punjabi Language School comes under the purview of the Board of Teaching and Testing of South Asian Languages (BTTSAL). BTTSAL is recognised by the Ministry of Education (Singapore) as it oversees the curriculum and assessment practices across the five officially recognised Non-Tamil Indian Languages (NTIL).

KS Bursary
The bursary provides early support for deserving Sikh students from less well-resourced homes who are able to work towards achieving the academic goals. The bursary will help to support the educational expenses of students who are Singapore citizens and ensure that no deserving student, because of financial circumstances, is deprived.

The closing date for application is 14 Jan 2024. Late applications will not be entertained.
