The Embassy of Hungary kindly informs all interested students that the Government of Hungary has launched the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme for the academic year 2022/2023, in which 200 students from Azerbaijan can study in Hungary. The applicants can find detailed information on the website:

The scholarship will cover the following provisions: exemption from the payment of tuition fee, a monthly stipend according to the relevant Hungarian legislation, dormitory place or a monthly contribution of HUF 40.000 to accommodation costs for the whole duration of the scholarship period, and health care services according to the relevant Hungarian legislation and supplementary medical insurance. Application will not be considered if the applicant was born after 31 August 2004 (= applicants under 18 years old as of 31 August 2022) except applicants applying for Dance study programmes.

Applicants can submit applications only online, on the website: until 15th January 2022.

Please note, that only those students or applicants can take part in the programme whose applications are supported by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Azerbaijan as the Eligible Sending Partner. So the applicants have to submit the applications online at the same time to the Ministry:

Main changes in this year’s Call for Applications are the following:

- Those scholarship holders who were awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship for the 2021/22 academic year, but after accepting their scholarship did not travel to Hungary, and did not start their studies, nor did they notify Tempus Public Foundation of this fact, will not be eligible to reapply within three years from being awarded and thus will automatically be rejected.

- Submitting a medical certificate will no longer be mandatory for those applying for study programmes where this is not a requirement. Nevertheless, scholarship holders will take part in medical examinations organized by universities upon their arrival. Please note that the Scholarship Holders undertake to participate in medical screenings in case their host institution or the scholarship programme imposes it upon them.

- Additional provisions will be applied during the technical check and so, applicants will be automatically rejected during the technical check if they:

  • have submitted multiple applications with more than two study programmes
  • have submitted multiple applications with more than one sending partner
  • provided any false information during the application process.

- Any possible changes in the entry and enrolment system due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation will be posted on the website: We will inform the Sending Partners about all changes as soon as possible and we advise applicants to consult our website regularly for updates.

- In addition, we would like to confirm that the following provision that was first introduced in last year’s call for application will still be applicable in this year’s Call for Applications: In the first year of their studies, non-doctoral students are required to attend the course of „Hungarian as foreign language” offered by the host university, and to pass an exam at the end of the second semester (except scholarship holders studying in Hungarian language). Scholarship holders who do not attend the course will not be able to receive the monthly stipend. The monthly stipend for students who take the course but fail to pass the exam will be reduced to 30,000 HUF/month.

The applicants can find detailed information about the process, the deadlines, and the necessary documents on the website (for bachelor’s, master’s,

one-tier master’s and non-degree programmes 2022-2023):
