The National Arts Council champions the arts in Singapore. By nurturing creative excellence and supporting broad audience engagement, we want to develop Singapore as a distinctive global city where the arts inspire our people and connect our communities. We preserve our rich, cultural traditions while we cultivate accomplished artists and vibrant companies for the future. Our support for the arts is comprehensive – from grants and partnerships to industry facilitation and arts housing. The Council welcomes greater private and corporate giving to and through the arts so that together we can make the arts an integral part of everyone's lives.


As Singapore's arts and culture scene develops amidst an increasingly complex socio-cultural environment, NAC recognises the need to continue to invest in and nurture a diversity of arts practitioners and professionals who have the knowledge and skills to lead the development of the scene, as well as champion the value of the arts to a wider community. New opportunities have emerged for professional practice and discourse in the areas of arts research and writing, community arts, arts education, and arts management, for example.

The NAC Scholarships provide support to outstanding individuals who wish to advance their career in the arts and lead positive changes in the areas of artistic practice, production, engagement and/or management.

The NAC currently offers two scholarships for individuals who are creative, bold and passionate about developing Singapore’s arts and cultural landscape:


The application period for both NAC Arts Scholarship (Undergraduate) and NAC Arts Scholarship (Undergraduate) starts in January and ends in Apr.

The exact dates of the application period will be made available closer to January here.
