Abstract

In this paper we investigate how the receipt of educational transfers, scholarships and relatedassistance programmes affects the labour supply of children and the marginal spendingbehaviour of households on children’s educational goods. We use a nationally representativehousehold survey of unusual scope and richness from Indonesia. We found strong evidenceof educational cash transfers and related assistance programmes significantly decreasing thetime spent by children on income-generating activities in Indonesia. Households receivingeducational transfers, scholarships and assistance were also found to spend more at themargin on voluntary educational goods. These results were stronger on children living in poorfamilies. The findings of this study lend support to the growing view in the literature thateducational transfers, scholarships and related assistance can actually have a positive impacton economic development by increasing the level of investment in human capital. Our resultsare particularly relevant for understanding the role of cash transfers and education assistancein middle-income countries, where enrolment rates are already at satisfactory levels, but thechallenge is to keep post-primary students in school. Finally, the principle message thatemerges from the study is: there are quantitatively non-negligible, average gains fromeducational transfers and support programmes on household education spending and childlabour, especially for the poor.
