The Stipendium Hungaricum is the best scholarship in Hungary for international students. It is funded by the Hungarian government and is established to promote internationalization and strengthen academic and research collaborations with other countries. Each year, Hungary accepts over 5,000 students from over 70 participating countries who are interested to complete a full degree at any level, in one of 29 Hungarian institutions. More than 500 programs are covered by the scholarship, catering to all fields and including non-degree programs.
Accepted scholarship recipients will be fully exempt from the payment of tuition fee and will receive additional stipends which can cover their other daily living expenses until their completion of studies. Free dormitory accommodation is also provided, but if the student decides to stay elsewhere, a housing allowance of HUF 40,000/month or approximately $133 will be given.
Additionally, the student will be entitled to health care services and medical insurance for up to HUF 100,000 ( approximately $334) each year. The monthly stipend will depend on the scholar’s level— bachelor’s, master’s, one-tier, and non-degree students will receive HUF 43,700 (roughly $146) monthly. Doctoral students are entitled to HUF 140,000 (around $467) for the first phase of education (4 semesters) and HUF 180,000 (around $600) for the second phase (4 semesters) each month
