The results of the competition for participation in the Hungarian Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship program have been summed up. There are 27 NCFU representatives among the winners. Next academic year, the doors of nine leading universities in Hungary will open for them.
According to the Department of International Projects and Programs of NCFU, the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship program was established by the Hungarian Government. It is designed to attract talented foreign students to study at higher educational institutions of the republic. Every year, 4.5 thousand students from all over the world become participants of the program. 200 scholarships are provided to Russians.
– This scholarship program is very popular all over the world, – said Ekaterina Melnik, a leading specialist of the NCFU Department of International Projects and Programs. – Our university has been participating in it for several years. Usually, only 2-4 representatives from one Russian university are awarded scholarships, and only last year twenty students were selected from NCFU at once. This time we submitted 37 applications for training in Hungary, and 27 of them were approved.
Not only the number of NCFU students awarded scholarships has increased. The range of training areas is expanding and, accordingly, the list of Hungarian universities that accept our students for training is expanding. So, in the new academic year, for the first time, a student studying oil and gas business will become a participant of academic mobility. Future specialists in the field of tourism, economic security, law, sociology, construction, applied computer science, international relations, translation studies and some other areas of training will also study abroad. Scholarships were awarded to students of the Humanities Institute, the Institute of Earth Sciences, the Pyatigorsk Institute, the Institute of Mathematics and Information Technologies named after prof. N. I. Chervyakov.
Nine metropolitan and regional universities of Hungary are waiting for NCFU representatives to study. Most of the students from Stavropol will be accepted by the Universities of Debrecen and Pecha, the Etvos Laurent Research University and the Budapest Business School. The Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Peter Pazman Catholic University and the Hungarian University of Agriculture (Budapest), Universities of Western Hungary (Sopron) will also open their doors to representatives of NCFU and Miskolc.
NCFU students will start classes in September. Most of them will study in Hungary for one semester. Four representatives of the university-Angelina Likhovid, Taisia Shabaldas, Gleb Filchenko and Violetta Ivashchenko-were awarded scholarships for a full course of study in the master's program of Hungarian universities. All participants of the program will be provided with housing and a scholarship, study trips and events will be organized.
