WHAT: Scholarship for cultural immersion trip to Hungary

WHEN: July 28- Aug 12, 2022
Application Period: November 3, 2021─February 28, 2022
Students spend two weeks in Hungary learning about their Hungarian roots—culture, traditions and history—through educational lectures with subject experts, meetings with start-up business leaders, visits to top-level government offices and panel discussions on current-day social and political issues. Local students accompany the group throughout the trip; a service project is undertaken; future internship opportunities are also available. The Program provides participants with a deepened sense of identity, increased knowledge base, broadened cultural horizon, honed interpersonal skills, expanded sensitivity to diversity, and a life-long, bi-continental network.
