About Stipendium
Hungaricum scholarship

Stipendium Hungaricum, being the most prestigious higher education scholarship programme of the Hungarian Government, offers a wide range of courses for international students of excellent academic track record. The scholarship aims to support the internationalization of the Hungarian higher education and its constant development, to strengthen the international relations of the academic and research community, and to promote the good reputation and competitiveness of the Hungarian higher education throughout the world.kk

Founded by the Hungarian Government in 2013, the programme is supervised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and managed by the Tempus Public Foundation.

It is based on bilateral education agreements between Hungary and the governments of the sending countries, and is already available on five continents in approximately 70 countries, attracting more than 5000 international students each year. Applicants are offered more than 500 full degree programmes, covering all higher education fields at all degree levels, including part-time and doctoral programmes.

We can proudly state that more than 90 percent of our scholarship holders would choose Hungary again, which we see as an inspiration to further broaden the scope of the scholarship in the future.

Alumni member experiences in Hungary II.

I reckon two years of my postgrad as a best part of my educational career where I got a chance to work with a best professor and researcher of my research interest. We are still in contact and working together on projects. Ergo, I believe Hungary is one of the best options to pursue your professional qualification.
