Thousands of students from all around the world apply for higher educational studies in Hungary each year. The number of Stipendium Hungaricum applicants is continuously increasing as well as the number of available scholarship places. In the 2019/2020 round of applications more than 4500 scholarships were awarded and currently we have over 7000 students studying here through the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship.
In the academic year 2020/2021 more than 5000 students can begin their studies in Hungary in the framework of the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme.
The programme is based on bilateral educational cooperation agreements signed between the Ministries responsible for education in the sending countries/territories and Hungary or between higher education institutions. Currently nearly 70 Sending Partners are engaged in the programme throughout 5 different continents.
