Educational and digital programs
- The Hungarian Diaspora Scholarship was established by the Hungarian Government for those who live in a Hungarian diaspora outside of Europe and wish to study at a Hungarian higher education institution to develop their personal, professional, and cultural relations to Hungary. The program aims to support the professional advancement of the scholarship holders with high-quality Hungarian higher education while improving their Hungarian language skills and strengthening their Hungarian identity. After graduation, scholarship holders return to their home country with competitive skills and knowledge that enable them to support their community, preserve Hungarian values, and reinforce the relations between the diaspora and Hungary.
- The Hungary Foundation offers two-way professional fellowship and internship programs for Hungarians in the U.S. and Americans in Hungary. As part of the Foundation’s digital engagement HuGo, the first ever Hungarian American community app was developed. The goal was to make Hungarian landmarks, points of interests, service providers, and institutions across the U.S. visible and easily accessible through a web platform and mobile application for Hungarians, Americans, and Hungarian Americans alike.
- ReConnect Hungary is a unique cultural, educational, and social immersion program of the Hungarian Human Rights Foundation for young adults aged 18-28 of Hungarian Heritage born in the U.S. or Canada. The program provides the gift of a peer-group heritage and cultural immersion trip to Hungary for Hungarian-North American young adults who want to strengthen their personal Hungarian identity through connection to the country, culture, and heritage. Every summer, groups of individually selected young Hungarian-Americans/Canadians begin a two-week journey of rediscovery together. They learn about their Hungarian roots—culture, traditions, and history—in the 21st century. The program is a result of the vision of Allison Pataki, New York Times best-selling author and daughter of former New York State Governor George E. Pataki.
