The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship



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 programme is based on bilateral educational cooperation agreements signed between the Ministries responsible for education in the sending countries/territories and Hungary. The number of both Stipendium Hungaricum applicants and awardees is continuously increasing, as well as the number of available scholarship places. In 2021, nearly 50 0000 applications were received and more than 4700 scholarships were awarded, showing that since its launch, the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship has become a programme of excellence.
