Eligibility

The Students at Risk Programme is available for students who had a student status at any recognised higher education institution in Ukraine on 24 February 2022 and fled to Hungary because of the war in Ukraine. There are two different Calls for Applications announced:

•   one for Ukrainian citizens (including dual citizenship, except for Ukrainian-Hungarian dual citizens), and

•   one for international students with third-country citizenship from – currently 81 – countries listed in the Call for Application; from the partner countries of the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme.

Provisions

The scholarship holders are entitled to a tuition-free education, a monthly stipend (HUF 43,700 at bachelor’s, master’s and one-tier master’s level and HUF 140,000/180,000 at doctoral level), accommodation contribution or free dormitory place, and medical insurance.

Start dates

The applicants can decide whether they would like to start their studies in spring 2022 or choose to apply for studies starting in autumn 2022, therefore the Programme is suitable for both currently staying in Hungary and those who left but undertake to return to Hungary.

Study fields, study programmes and host universities

Applicants with Ukrainian citizenship can choose any study field and study programme offered in the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme. Applicants with third-country citizenship can select study programmes offered in the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme in the field of Economic Science, Engineering Science, Computer Science and Information Technology, Natural Science, Agricultural Science and Medical and Health Science and they are eligible to apply for the Conductive Education study programme as well. Similarly, the applicants can apply to study at those Hungarian higher education institutions that are involved in the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. The majority of study programmes are offered in the English language.

Nota bene: The Students at Risk Programme is ONLY for students who started but could not complete their studies in Ukraine because they had to flee the ongoing war in Ukraine! This condition is essential, and it is not going to change. Due to the humanitarian crisis, it is of utmost importance that these students at risk get enrolled in Hungary as soon as possible! The application of any other persons who are not fleeing the war in Ukraine slows down this enrolment process. Due to this urgency and the seriousness of the situation, Tempus Public Foundation cannot accept any applications from persons who are NOT fleeing the war in Ukraine. A statement is part of the application package where the applicants need to declare that they are indeed fleeing the war in Ukraine. Making a false statement results in getting excluded from the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme for 10 years!
