Trudie Vervoort-Jaarsma studied psychology at the UvA in the 1960s. Her parents were high-profile jurists in Surabaya in the former Dutch East Indies. The two funds established from her bequest commemorate her mother, a successful lawyer who amassed a substantial share of the family's wealth, and her own daughter, who also studied psychology at the UvA and who died at a young age. Believing travel to be vital in students' academic training, she designated the scholarship specifically for this purpose.
