Extra cash calls for migrant students

Four HBO colleges (polytechnics) in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague have called on the government to give them extra cash for every ethnic minority student they attract.

Around 50% of HBO students come from a minority background but are more likely to drop out before graduating. The colleges want the money – approximately €1,000 per student per year – to pay for extra support.
