Advance Your Studies with Ease through the Talent Uplift Programme (TUP)!

TomoWork is committed to empowering undergraduate students who are driven to succeed in their future professional endeavours. Through the Talent Uplift Programme (TUP), we are delighted to offer a $4,000 grant per academic year to part-time and full-time students with Tailored Assistance enrolled in any university in Singapore.

The grant will be disbursed every semester, with the requirement of completing voluntary work at TomoWork or engaging in other community activities. It can be used to supplement tuition fees, cover course expenses, and assist with costs related to assistive technologies and services. As a TUP scholar, you will also benefit from the guidance of a mentor throughout your academic journey. Upon graduation, TomoWork will provide you with access to employment opportunities within our extensive partner ecosystem, further enhancing your career prospects.
