Bussemaker: "collegegeldvrij besturen"

Minister Jet Bussemaker stated yesterday in the Dutch Parliament's Second Chamber to be open minded about the concept "collegegeldvrij besturen" for fulltime student board members. Bussemaker thinks it's especially important for students from whom the parents don't or barely support financially.

At this moment the Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg, the Landelijke Studenten Vakbond and the Landelijke Kamer van Verenigingen are discussing the topic with the politicians in The Hague. Tilburg University decided in 2012 not to implement "collegegeldvrij besturen". We will keep you updated about the progress in Tilburg and The Hague!
