Ljubljana – Digital vouchers worth 150 euros are available as of today for students from 7th grade of primary school through to university. The vouchers can be used to purchase computer hardware and were introduced under an act on digital inclusion passed in February.
The vouchers, available to students who had permanent residency in Slovenia on 12 March, come in the form of credit and can be used to buy new, refurbished or used computer hardware, such as keyboards, screens, laptops and headphones.
The Government Office for Digital Transformation believes there will be significant interest in the vouchers based on the number of questions they received so far.
Some retailers have already prepared special offers for customers with vouchers, which must be used before November 30.
In autumn, vouchers will also be available to senior citizens over 55 years if they complete a free digital literacy course.
