Application Call for Scholarship for Christian Young People

2019. január 15., kedd

Once again, the Hungarian Government invites students from the Middle East to apply for the Scholarship for Christian Young People. Applications for the 2019/20 academic year open online at the end of January 2019.

The Scholarship for Christian Young People is run by the cooperation of the Ministry of Human Capacities in Hungary and partner churches pursuing humanitarian activities in crisis regions. The core mission of the program is to provide the opportunity to study in Hungary to young Christians in crisis regions or those being threatened in their home countries due to their faith.

Scholarships are available for Bachelor, Master, and One-tier Master programs. For the 2019/20 academic year, the scholarship is available to citizens of the following countries: the Lebanese Republic, the Republic of Iraq, the State of Israel, Egypt, Palestine, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the Syrian Arab Republic, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the Republic of Kenya, and Nigeria. Applicants may not carry a Hungarian citizenship.

Online applications open at the end of January 2019. The deadline to submit online applications is 20 March 2019.

Scholarships are for applicants who are older than 18 years of age by the time their education starts in Hungary. Applicants must submit verification and proof from their church that the applicant belongs to their religious community.

Scholarship holders must possess the relevant language and education certificates and/or degrees requested by the host university. After completing their studies, scholarship holders must commit return to their home communities with their newly gained knowledge to participate in the reconstruction of war-torn countries and contribute to improving the social situations and preserving the culture of Christian communities.

The Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary has joined the list of universities open to those in the program, thus offering the following degree programs:

  • BA in Psychology (in English)
  • BA in English and American Studies (in English)
  • MA in English Studies (in English)
  • MA in Deutscher Sprache, Literatur und Kultur (in German)
  • LL.M. in European and International Business Law (in English)
  • MA in Theology (in English)

The Reformed Church in Hungary (RCH) is proud to announce, for the 2019/20 academic year, the acceptance of a student from long-standing partner church, National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon (NESSL). The RCH hopes and encourages more young people from Reformed communities in the Middle East to apply to the scholarship program.
