You are only compensated for months in which you received a grant (‘prestatiebeurs’) and the height of financial compensation corresponds with the length (expressed in months) of your study delay.
The financial compensation provided will be equal to the amount of grant you received in the final month of the academic year in which the circumstances occurred. For most people, this is August. If you suspended your studies and terminated your student grant before this, you will receive a financial compenation equal to the amount of grant you last received in the academic year 2016-2017.
- Payment will be made after you have received the decision,
- Payment will be in monthly instalments.
- You will start receiving compensation in the month after the month in which your application was received.
- You can ask for the payments to start at a later date. The compensation paid is tax-free.
Payment will only be made if you are enrolled as a student at Utrecht University and you have paid your tuition fees. If you are enrolled at another institute of higher education, you can apply for payment to be made by that institution.
