10 years of
During the past decade, the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme has become a brand in its own right, demonstrating Hungary’s commitment to supporting international education and cultural exchange. The programme’s success is a testament to the quality and competitiveness of Hungarian higher education and the country’s commitment to science diplomacy.
Through the programme, Hungary has significantly increased its international development commitments, making it a valuable tool for promoting development and growth in partner countries. The programme has also enabled Hungary to provide support and opportunities for students affected by the war in Ukraine through the Students at Risk sub-programme, showing its flexibility and adaptability in a time of need.
The programme plays a crucial role in strengthening bilateral relations not only between Hungary and partner countries but also between higher education institutions. Additionally, the programme allows students to showcase Hungary’s cultural heritage and promote cultural exchange between nations.
Furthermore, the programme has contributed to developing strong alumni networks, which serve as pillars for bilateral relations. This network provides a framework for former scholarship recipients to stay connected with Hungary, build new relationships, and create opportunities for future collaborations.
