The Stipendium Hungaricum (SH) scholarship program was launched in 2013 by the Hungarian Government. The core mission of the program is to increase the number of foreign students in Hungary and to encourage the Hungarian higher education institutions to attract top foreign students. Currently 70 sending partners are engaged in the program.
Thousands of students from all over the world apply for higher educational studies in Hungary each year. In 2019 September 610 Stipendium grantholders started their studies at Corvinus University of Budapest.
The program is managed by Tempus Public Foundation.
