In order to become the best university of economics and social sciences in the Central Eastern European region by 2030, it is not only the standard of education and services that need to be continuously improved, but our students also have to bring out the maximum in themselves. This is the objective of the study scholarship.
As a result of changing for the foundation form of operation in 2019, we have been able to gradually separate ourselves from the rules of the state scholarship scheme. By raising more funds, we established a system that inspires students more efficiently than the previous system.
Who may get the scholarship?
The scholarship is granted to the best students, on the basis of their academic performance at the end of the semester. Students who enrolled at the Corvinus after the change in the maintainer, i.e. in September 2019 and after, are eligible for the scholarship financed by the Foundation. Of course, students who started their studies at the University before that time can also get scholarships, but their scholarship is calculated according to different rules.
How high is the amount?
In the last semester, we spent more than HUF 434 million on the study scholarship granted by the foundation, and 3533 students applied for this amount. 194 students applied for the state scholarship, the relevant budget was HUF 5.4 million. The limit for one applicant was almost four and a half times higher in the case of the foundation scholarship.
Students who are granted state scholarship receive amounts of HUF 8,400 – 19,200, while the minimum in the foundation is approx. HUF 40 thousand, and the maximum is HUF 70 thousand. The lowest required academic performance is 4.3, and 4.43 respectively.
The following table contains the detailed comparison of the two types of scholarships.
