Reboot your roots with the Hungarian Diaspora Scholarship!

Fulfil your professional dreams while you explore your Hungarian heritage with the Hungarian Diaspora Scholarship programme available for students around the globe.

The Hungarian Diaspora Scholarship was established by the Hungarian Government for those who live in a Hungarian diaspora outside the European Union, Serbia and the Zakarpattia Oblast of Ukraine, and wish to study at a Hungarian higher education institution to develop their personal, professional and cultural relations to Hungary.

By participating in the scholarship programme, you can receive an internationally recognised degree at a top-level Hungarian higher education institution and acquire highly competitive knowledge to advance both personally and academically. You can choose from almost 30 top-tier Hungarian higher education institutions and 1300 programmes offered mainly in English and Hungarian, covering all study fields and levels. The scholarship is available for both full-time studies leading to a degree and non-degree studies including one- or two-semester-long exchange studies.

The scholarship covers tuition-free education at the available higher education institutions, medical insurance, and upon request a monthly stipend, accommodation contribution and travel allowance.

While studying in Hungary, you can discover the thousand-year-old Hungarian history and culture while experiencing the unique Hungarian traditions. The scholarship also provides a great opportunity to enhance your Hungarian language skills and you can even apply for a one-year Hungarian language preparatory course supported by the programme.

The Hungarian Diaspora Scholarship is also an excellent opportunity to build a professional network and discover everything about the country in a supporting and welcoming student community with more than 40 000 international students studying in Hungary.

After graduation, you will return to your home country with competitive skills and knowledge that enables you to support your community, preserve Hungarian values and reinforce the relations between the diaspora and Hungary.
