The Dissertation Scholarship can be used for research and dissertation writing purposes only in cases when the scholarship holder’s presence in Hungary is absolutely necessary to finalize their doctoral activities.
Only those Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holders are eligible to apply
who obtain their absolutorium in the spring semester of the 2022/23 academic year but shall receive their doctoral degree after the end of their student status and
for whom it is an absolute necessity to stay in Hungary to finalize their doctoral activity.
The maximum duration of Dissertation Scholarship is 8 months, but it may not be longer than requested in the application.
