The enrolment rate in higher education is relatively low in Indonesia compared with neighbouring countries. In 2010 the government introduced a targeted education voucher program, Bidikmisi, to increase access to higher education and improve academic performance. The program covers tuition costs and living allowance fully for students coming from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. This paper investigates the impact of the program on student academic performance in university.
