University of Amsterdam features Heliconia Scholarship Foundation

Folia, the weekly magazine of the University of Amsterdam, published an article about Dutch students who are committed to non-profit organisations. Carli Kooper, our founder and chairperson was interviewed about the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation (formerly known as Stichting Heliconia). We hope that the article makes Dutch students aware that they can contribute to the accessibility of higher education for students in other countries, like we do in Indonesia. You can read the article on page 19.
