Applications are now welcome for STIPI Component A, which covers the costs of foreign university admission

Applications are now open yet again for Component A of the Stipendium Peregrinum scholarship programme, which provides financial support to young people wishing to study at the world's most prestigious universities abroad.

The first round of applications will be open from 6 to 27 November 2023, after which applications will be accepted until the available funds are exhausted.

The Main Patron of Stipendium Peregrinum is President of Hungary Katalin Novák.

The Stipendium Peregrinum Scholarship programme aims to provide financial and professional support for young people with outstanding talents to continue their studies in higher education abroad. The programme is one of the first in the world to provide full funding for the acquisition of knowledge abroad, which Hungarian youth can later put to good use in our country as well.

The non-refundable financial support available under STIPI's Component A covers the costs of the admission process for students applying to the world's most prestigious universities. The support can be used to cover, among other things, admission fees, international language examination fees and travel costs.

The scholarship is open to exceptionally talented Hungarian youth, both within and outside our borders, who are between the ages of 17 and 24.

The deadline for the first submission of the two-round application is Monday 27 November, 2023 at 23:59. After that, applications will be continuously accepted until the scholarship fund is exhausted, but no later than 23:59 on Monday 29 April 2024.

The Main Patron of Stipendium Peregrinum is President Katalin Novák, the initiator and promoter of the programme. Component A of the scholarship programme, which was launched in 2020, has so far supported 216 applications with a total of HUF 27.1 million.

The Stipendium Peregrinum scholarship system consists of three components, providing financial support to Hungarian students from admission to the completion of their university studies. Component A finances the admission procedure, Component B covers the full costs of the first year for students who have already been admitted, and Component C provides support for the completion of the following years.
