The core mission of the program is to increase the number of foreign students in Hungary and to encourage Hungarian higher education institutions to attract top foreign students. Currently 68 sending countries are engaged in the program (which also means, that unfortunately there are plenty of countries in the world, which are not part of the programme). The Scholarship covers the tuition, accommodation, medical insurance and monthly stipend.
