What Is it?

The SkillsFuture Fellowship is a tripartite initiative that recognises Singapore Citizens who have acquired deep skills through significant work experience in particular industries or job functions. Individuals must be champions of lifelong learning and deeply committed to contributing to the skills development of others. Up to 100 awards will be given out annually at steady state.

Who Is It For?

The SkillsFuture Fellowships are for Singapore citizens with at least 10 years of working experience in the same (or related) industry or job functions. Nominations can be made by individuals, or through employers, chambers, trade associations and unions. Individuals may also self-nominate. The criteria are:

  • Possess deep skills in relevant areas of professional and technical expertise;

  • Demonstrate a strong personal commitment to lifelong learning and mastery of domain, with plans to pursue further skills deepening; and

  • Be prepared to contribute to the skills development of others, as an active advocate for lifelong learning and skills development.

How does it work?

Up to 30 award recipients will receive a monetary award of S$10,000 each to support their journey towards skills mastery in their respective fields.

How Will I Benefit?

You can use the award monies to access a wide range of skills deepening and upgrading options. The training programmes, which may be conducted locally or overseas, should lead to the acquisition of new skills and knowledge which will add value to your career development.
