Scholarship for Hungarian students

The Cambridge–Oxford Alumni Club of Hungary (COACH) is pleased to launch the COACH Scholarship, as part of our commitment to supporting the academic and personal development of students. The Scholarship aims to support students’ academic goals and career development, and shall be a prestigious award made to deserving individuals.

The COACH Committee therefore invites applications from Hungarians in full-time education at the University of Cambridge or the University of Oxford. The Committee aims to give out scholarships to the tune of £500, should suitable candidates present themselves, although this may be adjusted to suit the successful candidates’ aims.

All Hungarian students are eligible to apply who are enrolled in full-time study and have at least 6 months remaining in their studies at the time of application, or have proof of admission to continue their studies at Cambridge or Oxford on another course (e.g. master’s after bachelors, or PhD after master’s).

The selection criteria will be a combination of academic merit, community leadership and financial need. Successful candidates will be able to use the funds freely, although we do require the intentions to be laid out at the time of application.

To apply, please submit your details using this form and send your CV (no more than 2 pages, in English) to by 12 noon, 1 March 2024. Additionally, we request a reference to support your application to be sent to the same email address by the same deadline. We expect decisions to be made by April.

In your application, please include information about your course, outline relevant outstanding academic or sporting achievements, community leadership engagements, awards or funding received, financial needs, and elaborate in detail how the scholarship would contribute to your academic and career goals and how you propose to use it.

Please note that inaccurate or incomplete information provided in the application will result in disqualification from the selection process.

We are looking forward to your applications and wish you good luck in the process.
