and an additional three years for those that did national service or the army with no conditons attached - but limit it to four/seven years once in a lifetime. .Those who do the army or national service and opt not to study the additional three years should be given the equivalent grant, subject to using it to start a small business with appropriate counseling. The increase in productivity/decrease in economic concentration/increase in job formation would more than pay for it in the long run. But after the four/seven years are up - that's it. No more stipends. So if you opt to study something that you can't make a living from it's your problem.
