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.

Purchasing power compensation for secondary education, MBO, and higher education

For the academic year 2023-2024, the government also proposes a purchasing power compensation scheme for students living away from home. The measure aims to give students extra support for 1 year, as purchasing power has fallen.

The government is proposing an amount of about €165 per month. This amount would only be given out to students with a basic grant or an allowance for students in secundary education. It will be added to the grant or allowance and applies to the academic year 2023-2024.

Gift or repayment

For MBO students at levels 1 and 2, the extra amount immediately is a gift.

For MBO students at levels 3 and 4, and for HBO and university students, the amount is part of the performance-related grant. It only becomes a gift if you obtain your diploma or degree within 10 years. If you don’t make this deadline, you will need to repay the total amount, including interest.

Application not necessary

If you are entitled to the purchasing power measure, you do not have to do anything. You will automatically receive the amount on top of your basic grant or allowance for students in secundary education.

Measure not in notice

The student finance and the allowance notices for 2023 do not yet contain any information about the purchasing power measure, as it is not yet final. Should the plans be put into effect, you will receive a new notice in 2023.
