Dear Fellow Singaporean,

Are you missing home? Do you miss being around fellow Singaporeans and want to organise events to bring Singaporeans together and bring about the Singapore spirit in your community? Or, are you thinking of starting a project to encourage fellow Singaporeans abroad to help those in need? The Overseas Singaporean Unit (OSU) has just the right funding programme for you! Through the Overseas Singaporean Funding Programme (OSFP), OSU provides a seed funding for overseas Singaporeans to help support your initiative!

Want to find out more? Just head over to our Overseas Singaporean Portal (OSP) to read all about OSFP!

As we constantly review our programmes to do better, we would also like to take this opportunity to share an important update on the 3 upcoming changes to the OSFP with effect from 1 April 2019.


1. ONLINE SUBMISSION FOR NEW APPLICATIONS

Come 1 April 2019, both pre-event and post-event submission will be done online. Simply sign up to be an Overseas Singaporean Portal member and/or log on to OSP to submit your new application! The user guide will be made available on OSP come 1 April 2019.

If you intend to submit a pre-event application before 1 April 2019, please follow the current application process for submission (i.e. complete the Funding Application Form and email it to the respective OSU officer base in your area).


2. REVISED TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Please note that the following revised timeline.

a.       Submission of new applications: At least 3 weeks before the event (i.e. 21 calendar days), instead of 2 weeks.

b.       Submission of Post Event Report: Within 2 months from the end of the event, instead of 1 month.


3. APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED BEFORE 1 APRIL 2019

For OSFP applications submitted between 1 April 2018 and 31 March 2019, your applications will be processed based on the current terms and conditions. Hence, please continue to submit the Post Event Report within 1 month from the end of the event.

If you need any clarifications, feel free to send us an email at overseassingaporean@mccy.gov.sg or approach our friendly Overseas Singaporean Liaisons!
