The Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship financially contributes to the tuition fees and living expenses of the scholarship holder. However, it does not fully cover all the costs of living and the students need to add their own financial resources in order to cover all living expenses in Hungary. All applicants are highly advised to check the expected living expenses both in Hungary and in the city that they wish to live in before applying. Check out the Cost of Living Calculator!
