STAP-Budget Makeup Artist Course

Receive a discount of up to €1000 on the professional Makeup Artist training course, the Advanced Class of the Masterclass Hairstyling with STAP-Budget

On March 1, 2022, the new STAP ruling of the government came into effect, with which you can receive a subsidy of up to €1000 at schools that are in the STAP training register. The professional courses of Art of Colors makeup artist school are listed in this register.

What is the STAP budget?

The STAP budget is a funding for your education. The maximum amount is €1000 and you can apply for it once a year.

Pay attention! The STAP budget replaces the fiscal education deduction in the Dutch income tax from January 1, 2022. The budget must be requested timely (sometimes 2.5 months before you start your training). Register early or inquire in advance whether you can apply for the STAP-Budget for the course you prefer.

For whom is the STAP budget?

If you live in the Netherlands and have a BSN number, you probably meet the criteria:

  • You are an EU citizen or a partner of an EU citizen
  • You are between 18 and 67 years old
  • You have lived, worked or received income in the Netherlands for at least 6 months
  • At the time of the application, you don't receive any other funding in the field of education from the Dutch government (such as student grants, teachers' grants, etc.)
  • You have not yet received the STAP budget this year
