Grants for U.S. Students

Why Hungary?Awards to United States citizens are for postgraduate study in Hungary. Students can either follow a regular curriculum or spend the year in independent study. There is no restriction on the field of study.

The award covers standard living and study expenses, any tuition fees and roundtrip travel. Although the award is normally for one academic year, the Commission is able to offer a limited number of students the opportunity to extend or renew their grant.

There is no upper age limit and candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree or its equivalent.

Initial screening is done in the United States by the Institute of International Education (IIE), 809 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 10017, USA. The application deadline is October 17, 2011, and the results are usually announced the following spring.
