On 6 June, the Talent Development advisory committee will meet for the second time to evaluate a total of 60 development plans. The scouts Marian Duff and Meryem Slimani will be present for part of the meeting. They will describe the eight practices of the makers who were selected during the scout nights, but will not provide any further advice. The remaining 52 were already selected by the committee in the first round of Talent Development. On the basis of the plans submitted, the committee will select a maximum of 35 makers to receive a grant of € 24,000 from the Fund. At least two of these grants are reserved for the makers nominated by the scouts. These grants come from extra resources that the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) made available for talent development in September 2018.
