According to the information received from the State Secretariat for the Aid of Persecuted Christians and for the Hungary Helps Programme, due to the coronavirus pandemic and its yet unforeseeable future consequences, the application process of the Scholarship Programme for Christian Young People has been suspended for the 2020/2021 academic year.
Altogether, 114 European higher education institutions from 24 member states are represented in the new programme of the European Commission. Due to the initiative called 'European Universities', launched last year, the projects of 17 international alliances can be launched in the near future. As many as five alliances with a Hungarian member received funding, making Hungary the sixth most successful country in the EU.
Run for over 10 years now, the Erasmus Mundus programme supports gap-filling international master’s programmes. Hungarian higher education institutions, too, have significant achievements in this excellence programme run by the EU.
