Fully Funded Hungary Scholarship Program 2022/2023 | How to Make an Application

The Hungary Scholarship Program 2022/2023 is now accepting applications. You can now apply for Hungary scholarships online, but you must follow the procedures on how to apply for scholarships in Hungary in 2022.
The Government of Hungary established the Scholarship Programme for Christian Young People (SCYP) in 2017.

The State Secretariat for the Aid of Persecuted Christians and the Hungary Helps Program manages the Scholarship Program for Christian Young People. Since August 2020, the Hungary Helps Agency has been in charge of coordinating the Scholarship Program.

The Scholarship Program for Christian Young People’s main goal is to provide young Christian students from crisis areas across the world with the opportunity to study in Hungary.

After completing their studies, scholarship recipients will return to their home communities to use their newfound knowledge to aid in the reconstruction of war-torn countries and contribute to the development of social conditions and the preservation of Christian communities’ culture.
