HUNGARIAN STATE SCHOLARSHIPS

Tempus Public Foundation offers scholarships for foreign higher education students, graduates who would like to gain further knowledge and experience in Hungarian higher education institutions.

Applications may be submitted in two ways:

Only for doctoral full degree studies: Croatia, Romania

Applicants, as future ministerial scholarship holders for full degree bachelor, master and doctoral studies, can only apply for programs held in Hungarian language. In case of doctoral studies for applicants holding a master’s degree a successful entrance exam at the Hungarian doctoral school is a precondition to being granted by the scholarship. However, if the host institution declares that the doctoral program could be fullfilled by English speakers then Hungarian language skills are not required from the applicant.
