The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme was launched in 2013 by the Hungarian Government. The core mission of the programme is to increase the number of foreign students in Hungary and to encourage Hungarian higher education institutes to attract top foreign students; currently more than 50 sending partners are engaged in the programme. The programme is based on bilateral educational cooperation agreements between the Hungarian government and the partner countries. Applications will be considered eligible if the applicant is nominated by the responsible authorities of the sending partner.
The Programme is managed by Tempus Public Foundation.
List of the partner countries can be found on the website of Tempus Public Foundation .
Stipendium Hungaricum scholarships are available for bachelor, master, one-tier master, doctoral and non-degree programmes (preparatory and specialisation courses). Both full-time and part-time study plans are available in case of bachelor, master, one-tier master and doctoral studies.
