Major Changes in the Funding System for Higher Education in the Netherlands. AIR 1989 Annual Forum Paper.
Brons, Reyer
The Dutch government has adopted a policy of increasing the number of freshmen while reducing governmental spending. In addition, institutional autonomy is being promoted as an objective. Methods of balancing these policies and objectives are discussed, emphasizing the methods planned or in use in the Netherlands, including: (1) a complex allocation model; (2) selective retrenchment; (3) a limited term of enrollment; (4) privatized loans for scholarships; and (5) a voucher system. Changing the allocation model and limiting the term of enrollment have proved difficult but have met with some success. Changes in the scholarship system and the introduction of a voucher system have not yet been made. Contains 14 references. (Author/KM)
