Application Procedure

Objectives

The Inter-Ministry Cyber Wellness Steering Committee (ICSC) seed funding scheme is designed to encourage, support and assist Singapore-based companies, associations and organisations (hereby known as applicants) in organising Cyber Wellness events, initiatives or projects for our youth and parents.

Eligibility Criteria

The scheme provides support through seed funding to cover the costs of carrying out Cyber Wellness projects to reach out to the youth and parents.

The project must be non-profit in nature and directly linked to cyber wellness promotion. As a general principle, ICSC does not support funding for:

  • Infrastructural setup including, but not limited to, cost incurred for venue, logistics, and giveaways
  • On-going projects

The project will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Meet ICSC's objectives;
  • Clarity of approach;
  • Feasibility of implementation;
  • Reach and impact;
  • Sustainability;
  • Scalability; and
  • Financial prudence

Organisations are invited to submit proposals that encourage and support the positive use of the internet and mobile technologies, but not limited to the following areas:

For Children and Youths

  1. Promoting healthy digital habits - e.g. balanced screen time, healthy cyber gaming and device-free leisure activities
  2. Handling risky online relationships – e.g. online predators, sexting
  3. Managing cyber bullying: Building resilience and combating negativity on social media
  4. Practising good cyber hygiene: Understanding cyber risks and adopting cybersecurity measures

For Parents and Caregivers

  1. Promoting healthy digital habits: Equipping parents with information and resources to help them understand the digital trends and to encourage balanced screen time and device-free family activities
  2. Preventing cyber bullying: How parents and caregivers can play a role in helping their children deal with cyber bullying
  3. Practising good ‘cyber hygiene’: Equipping parents and caregivers with information and resources to help their children identify potential dangers and ways to secure their devices and safeguard their data
