On DUO's website you will find more information about how and when to pay tuition fees. For families with minimal financial resources, there are the following possibilities for financial aid in schooling:
Stichting Leergeld [foundation learning costs]
Stichting Leergeld (dutch) is committed to helping school-aged children (4 to 18 years of age) from families with minimal financial resources. You can apply for, for example, parent contributions, school trips, school camps or transport to school. Purchasing a bicycle or computer is also possible.
Parents or caregivers may call for assistance from a local Leergeld Stichting if they cannot pay certain in-school or out-of-school activities and have an income that is demonstrable below 120% the minimum income level.
If, due to your financial situation, you are unable to pay the tuition fees and additional study costs, you may be entitled to the Emergency Fund. Travel expenses are not reimbursed via the Emergency Fund.
To apply for the Emergency Fund please contact our Info Point at +31 40 269 44 44.
