The Training Industry Professionals in Tourism (TIP-iT) supports tourism companies in employee upgrading and talent and leadership development.


The TIP-iT is open to all Singapore-registered businesses/companies.

Proposed projects should fall under one of the following categories:

  • Employee Upgrading – Provides incentives for training and course development in tourism-related skill sets which enhances the capability and productivity of the workforce. Scope of training supported includes New/Specialised Skills, Multi-skilling, and Enhanced Service Delivery.
  • Tourism Talent and Leadership Development – A scholarship scheme which aims to attract young talents into the tourism sector and groom middle management leaders of tourism companies to be leaders of tomorrow


​For more information or queries on the grant scheme, you may contact the STB Incentive Policy Department at

There are a few additional steps if you would like to apply for their subsidy to study so it is a good idea to start early.  Grants can take 4 – 6 weeks to process and this needs to be completed BEFORE you register for any education.
