Scholarship Program for Christian Young People January 18, 2021

Applications for the Scholarship Program for Christian Young People (SCYP) for the 2021/2022 academic year are now open.

The deadline is 31 January 2021.

The Scholarship Program for Christian Young People was founded in 2017 by the Government of Hungary in the spirit of its solidarity policy towards persecuted Christian minorities. The core mission of the SCYP is to provide opportunities to pursue higher education studies in Hungarian host institutions for Christian youth living in crisis regions of the world or being threatened in their countries because of their faith. After completing their studies, the scholarship holders can become the catalysts of the development of their countries and contribute to building capacities and strengthening resilience at the local level with their knowledge acquired in Hungary upon return to their homelands.

For the 2021/22 academic year, the scholarship is announced for the citizens of the following countries: Egypt, Lebanese Republic, Republic of Iraq, State of Israel, Palestine, Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Syrian Arab Republic, Republic of Kenya, Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, Republic of Armenia and Nigeria.

Within the framework of the scholarship, you can apply to three of our Masters programs (Computer Science Engineering, Info-Bionics Engineering and Medical Biotechnology), as well as to our Doctoral School.

For details about the scholarship scheme, please check out the Program website.

Come and study at Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest, Hungary, in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.
