The study grant consists of four components: interest-bearing loan, student travel product, supplementary grant and a tuition fee loan. The study grant contains a loan for students who started their bachelor or master from or after September 1, 2015. Student travel product and supplementary grant will only be converted into a donation if you manage to obtain a diploma within 10 years. The graduation term of 10 years starts the moment you are eligible for a study grant. If you are a student within the old framework (started a bachelor or master before September 1, 2015), the performance grant, student travel product and supplementary grant can be converted into a donation if you manage to obtain a diploma within 10 years.
