Institutional scholarships

Scholarships offered by higher education institutions: in some cases you may be eligible to apply for a scholarship directly from the Hungarian higher education institution you will be studying at. This kind of institutional scholarship may also be available for researchers.

Other scholarships

Depending on where you come from, there may be some study abroad grants or other funding that you could apply for by contacting the grant-awarding organizations in your home country. If you are not sure if you could be eligible for such financial aid, we kindly suggest that you contact e.g. the Ministry of Education (or some other equivalent authority) in your country, and ask whether it would be possible for you to apply for a grant for studies or research in Hungary.
