Semmelweis University pays dedicated attention to the recognition of talented students, their support and scientific education. Organised talent support programmes are realised in colleges for advanced studies and within the framework of the talent support programmes.
Students’ Scientific Association (TDK)
The primary goal of the Students’ Scientific Association is to provide an opportunity for every student to get involved in research and to gain experience at Hungarian and international conferences. The Students’ Scientific Association is a platform for self-instruction and scholar training: talented students are aided by outstanding teachers and researchers to get an insight into scientific life during their studies. The programme enables students to build personal and professional relationships that prepare them for their scientific career. Currently, there are around 1,200 students involved in the programme of the Students’ Scientific Association. Nearly all of the university’s departments and clinics take part in the talent support programme.

Kerpel-Fronius Talent Support Programme
The Kerpel-Fronius Talent Support Programme was set up by the Senate of the university in 2007 to find and continuously support exceptionally talented incoming, current and graduated students. Since 2017 the programme has been open to international students as well. The programme is run by the Talent Support Council with the help of the faculties’ representatives.
Semmelweis University’s outstanding teachers and researchers volunteer to become mentors and are responsible for one exceptionally talented student’s academic advancement, support and application for the scholarship.
Enrolment in the programme is based on the student’s academic results and a personal interview, and successful applicants are offered individual mentoring and scholarship opportunities by the programme.
The Jellinek Harry Scholarship is run by the Kerpel-Fronius programme which provides the opportunity for 6 students per year to study at the universities of Heidelberg and Freiburg. The Semmelweis Foundation sponsors 7 students per year for their outstanding scientific, cultural and public activities.
