The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Programme was launched in 2013 by the Hungarian Government and is co-ordinated by Tempus Public Foundation since 2015. The programme is based on bilateral educational cooperation agreements signed between the Ministries responsible for education in the sending countries/territories and Hungary or between institutions. The number of both Stipendium Hungaricum applicants and awardees is continuously increasing, as well as the number of available scholarship places.
