Stipendium Hungaricum

Application deadline: 15th January 2024

The Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme is a unique opportunity created by the Hungarian Government to promote internationalisation and diversity in higher education. Since its launch in 2013, it had opened the door to quality education and professional development for thousands of foreign students, providing financial support during their time in Hungary.

Students in general are able to apply for any study level (bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral studies) while certain programmes are offered both as full degree and partial (exchange) study options as well. What kind of programmes are exactly available for nationals of each country will depend on the bilateral agreement signed between the Ministry of Education of the given country and Hungary. Students are able to apply for the upcoming September intake each year, submitting their applications via an online platform. Pay attention to which platform you use for your application as applications submitted directly to the university will not be considered for the scholarship.
