We are pleased to announce that MATE International Scholarship Program (MISP) has been established by MATE - Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences (former Szent István University).

In order to assist our internationalisation activities in line with the governmental eastern and southern opening strategies, we are honoured to launch MISP to provide new prospects to a larger number of beneficiaries.

What is MATE International Scholarship Program (MISP)?

MISP is primarily aimed at newcomer candidates from the African, Asian and South American continent. It refers to programs at BSc and MSc level. The same list of study programs are offered as in Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Program.
