The main aim of the Scholarship Programme for the Hungarian Diaspora is to give support to foreign students with Hungarian identity to pursue their studies in Hungarian higher education institutions.

The Programme is organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, managed by Tempus Public Foundation.

The Programme includes members of the Hungarian diaspora communities in every country in the world, except in the Member States of the European Union, the Republic of Serbia and the Zakarpatska Oblast part of Ukraine.


Provisions covered by the scholarship:

  • exemption from the payment of tuition fee,
  • health insurance (social security card).

Provisions covered by the scholarship on request
 (conditions for this are set out in the Regulations):

  • monthly stipend and contribution to accommodation costs.

Available study programmes:

The Programme involves Hungarian higher education institutions that also offer study programmes in the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. The list of study programmes available in the Programme (including programmes taught in Hungarian) is currently being finalized in cooperation with the higher education institutions.

Study programmes both in English and Hungarian will be available. In the case of English language study programmes, the scholarship holder must also participate in Hungarian as a foreign language course during the period of studies. For the studies planned in Hungarian, we will provide an opportunity to participate in a Hungarian language preparatory course.
