The online application platform for the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship for the academic year 2021/22 is available ever since November 2020. Many of you have already submitted their application documents but as the deadline approaches, we advise you to review these steps so that you won’t miss out on this great opportunity.

1. Visit the stipendiumhungaricum.hu website!

Browsing on the official website of the scholarship is always a good start: all the necessary information on the application procedure, the deadlines and other news on the scholarship can be found there so make sure you skim through the announcements on a regular basis.

2. Check the list of study fields available from your country and the entrance requirements!

The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship has a wide range of study fields on all degree levels but it is important for you to know that the list of available programmes is different in each and every country of origin. Once you’ve found a suitable programme and higher education institution of your interest, you should also make sure that you know the details of the entrance requirements!

3. Contact your sending authority for further information!

Since Hungary has a partner institution responsible for the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship in all available countries, it is important for you to check their websites regularly for information relevant specifically for your country.

After being chosen by your local authority, you are eligible to take the online entrance exam at your selected Hungarian higher education institution.
