Scholarship Opportunities for Students from Ukraine

The Hungarian Government has made it a priority to support those displaced by the war in Ukraine.

With this objective in mind, the Tempus Public Foundation developed the Students at Risk Program (STaR) in March 2022 (as a sub-programme of the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship), which is specifically designed for persons from Ukraine who are studying in higher education, in order to enable them to start and/or continue their studies in the Hungarian higher education system.


Students at Risk Program:

  • This is a Hungarian governmental program developed for students studying in full-time programmes.
  • It covers tuition fees for the programme which the student gets admitted to, for the full duration of the programme.
  • It grants a monthly stipend and housing allowance which both are transferred on a monthly basis.
  • As a guest student, you can receive the stipend and a housing allowance once you are admitted to the program and the Tempus Public Foundation granted you the Scholarship.
  • With this scholarship, you are entitled to use the Hungarian Social Securtiy and private insurance.
  • Hungarian citizens and persons with dual citizenship (Hungarian included) cannot apply for this specific scholarship.
  • For more information for Ukrainian citizens, please click here: https://stipendiumhungaricum.hu/uploads/2020/03/StaR_Call_for_Applications_Ukrainian_citizens.pdf
  • For more information for other citizens, please click here: https://stipendiumhungaricum.hu/uploads/2020/03/StaR_Call_for_Applications_third_country_citizens.pdf

If you are not eligible to get the STaR scholarship or if you are not awarded the STaR scholarship, you will still be able to apply for an other scholarship which will be funded by the Erasmus+ program.


Extraordinary Erasmus+ scholarship:

  • Guest students who have already been admitted (as a guest student) can apply for this exceptional scholarship for a limited period of time.
  • This scholarship is limited to the guest student status.
  • This program covers education costs as a guest student and provides a monthly grant to help with living expenses.
  • It is granted on a first come first serve basis within the limits of the available budget.
  • This program does not cover the costs of social security.

SZTE Experience

My name is Olney Rodrigues de Oliveira and I am from Brazil. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies in the Doctoral School of Education at SZTE. I chose the University of Szeged because it’s one of the best universities in Europe, especially in the field of education. I personally love Szeged because it is safe and I love the architecture, the cultural events, the local Market Mars Tér and so many other beautiful destinations. For my studies I wanted to have an excellent university in a good quality life city and Szeged offers me that. It’s neither too big nor too small, I can ride my bike to go to my classes and practically everything is within a walking distance. I would advise the prospective students to enjoy the city during their stay, the cultural and historical events, know other international students and make a lot of friends, visit other cities in Hungary and make good memories. I am pretty sure that you will be proud of this priceless experience. Before coming to Hungary I worked several years as a teacher. I love the academic environment, the libraries, relationship with students and the feeling to be involved in the acquisition of new knowledge. That is why I plan to be part of a University as a professor as well as to keep researching in different aspects of the process of education. I am so thankful to be here and I believe that the Universe brought me to Szeged because the city and the University are the experience that I need in my life now.


Ferdous Rahman – Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

My name is Ferdous Rahman and I am from Bangladesh. I am pursuing doctoral studies at the Department of Private International Law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science under the Stipendium Hungaricum Programme. Currently I am in the first year of my four-year PhD programme. I came to know about SZTE while exploring for the Stipendium Hungaricum programme. Among the other available options, this was my first choice. Apart from its excellent ranking, I got my supervisor with similar research interest. The increasing number of international students gave me a comfort of having a cosmopolitan environment. After starting my studies here in September 2019, I am convinced that I could not expect more. For prospective students, I would advise that SZTE can be their next home as I got mine. Everyone here including the professors, the administrators, and the students are very friendly and helpful. They make studies a joyous journey instead of pile of classes and books. After my graduation, I will return to my home country. The knowledge and the experience that I have been receiving here will be a great resource for my academic career. I intend to continue my research further and expect to contribute to policy formulation at national and international level."
