Research into better compensation ‘pechstudenten’

 

Terug naar het Nederlands

 

The Senate wants the Cabinet to investigate how students who have not received a basic grant (the so called ‘pechstudenten') can be better compensated. Many political groups in the Senate find compensation of about one thousand euros per 'pechstudent’ too meagre. Therefore, a majority of the Senate signed a motion of the Partij van de Arbeid (PvdA) that called on the Cabinet "to investigate other possibilities for compensation for these students and to inform the House about this within three months".

 

Fully compensate
A more far-reaching motion by the Party for the Animals, which called on the Cabinet to fully compensate these students and to compensate them with a gift equivalent to the basic grant they did not receive, did not make it. (HOP, HC)
