The Bognár Family Hungarian Scholarship Fund

Introduction

The scholarship fund, originally named the Hungarian Scholarship Fund (HSF), was established in 1999 by Dr. Béla and April Bognár.

In the spring of 2014, Dr. Béla and April Bognár requested the Hungarian American Coalition to become the administrator of their Hungarian Scholarship Fund as part of the Coalition’s comprehensive training and educational portfolio.  The Coalition has taken over administrative duties for this program, including fundraising, recipient selection and evaluation. With the Bognárs’ agreement, HSF has been renamed The Bognár Family Hungarian Scholarship Fund.

More background informations about The Bognár Family Hungarian Scholarship Fund can be found in here.

The program

The Bognár Family Hungarian Scholarship Fund provides monthly financial assistance to qualified Hungarian university students studying in Hungary, Romania, Ukraine, Slovakia, Serbia, and the United States.  The scholarship awardees will receive a stipend per semester to cover their tuition fee or other expenses related to their studies. The exact amount of the stipend will be determined by the Fund’s Scholarship Committee.

Application process

Applicants should submit the following documentation:

  • An application letter giving information on the applicant’s family circumstances and a statement of financial need,
  • Information on sources of income and required expenditures to cover tuition, travel, books, housing, etc.
  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae including a recent picture,
  • Information on the applicant’s participation in Hungarian community service, cultural, religious, civic or sports related activities,
  • Two letters of recommendation: one from a teacher and one from a religious or community leader,
  • High school and college scholastic records and information on academic standing;

 

Applications which do not meet the Scholarship Fund's requirements will not be acknowledged.

Scholarships are awarded by the Fund’s Scholarship Committee.  Successful applicants will be notified and further information given on the transfer of funds.

All scholarship awardees are expected to write thank you letters to donors.  They are also expected to file regular reports on their educational progress, as they are eligible to apply for a scholarship for the following year.  However, their application will be considered along with those of new applicants.

Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
