Government plans on student grants as from 2023

The government wants to reinstate the basic grant for all HBO and university students as of the academic year 2023-2024. There are more plans, also affecting MBO students. These plans are not final yet as they still have to be approved by Dutch parliament, the Eerste Kamer and the Tweede Kamer. This is scheduled for 2023.
