Hungarian State Scholarships for Canadian students to study in Hungary
The Balassi Institute, an agency of the Hungarian government, is once again offering its 10 month Program for Hungarian Language and Cultural Studies to foreign students for 2011-12. Courses start in September 2011. Canadian students of Hungarian origin between the ages of 18 (the student must be 18 by the beginning of September 2011) and 35 are eligible to apply. The call for applications this year is a bit later than usual as there have been changes at the Institute with the change of government in Hungary in 2010. However, the application deadline has also been extended: it is May 9th 2011 by which date applications must be received by the New York Scout Association ( see below). And please note that in addition to sending in paper applications with all the required documentation, applicants MUST register online before May 2nd 2011 at the following address:
