Stipendium Hungaricum

1. The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme

The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme was launched in 2013 by the Hungarian Government with the aim of providing opportunity for foreign students to pursue their higher education studies in Hungary. The core mission of the programme is to increase the number of international students in Hungary and to encourage Hungarian higher education institutions to attract top foreign students.

The scholarship program offers both full-degree and partial study opportunities in the three cycle degree structure (bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programmes), mostly in English language, however, other foreign language study programmes are also available in the frame of the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme. Students can also apply for a one-year Hungarian language preparatory training course, following which they can pursue their higher education studies in Hungarian language.

2.0 Provision covered by the scholarship

Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holders are encouraged to focus on their academic advancement during their stay in Hungary, as all their tuition fees are covered, and their accommodation and living costs are supported as well. Upon finishing their studies, a European degree in hand provides graduates with a wide range of opportunities in the global job market.

Please bear in mind that these provisions are only a contribution to the living expenses of the Scholarship Holders. It means that it does not fully cover all the costs of living and the students need to add their own financial resources in order to cover all living expenses in Hungary. All applicants are highly advised to check the expected living expenses both in Hungary and in the city that they wish to live in before applying; please do check our Cost of Living Calculator by clicking here: http://www.studyinhungary.hu/living-in-hungary/menu/your-costs-of-living.html
