Application Instructions

The FAO-Hungarian Government Scholarship sorting process will be in two segments

Segment 1: the FAO will do a thorough screening of applicants and submit selected applications to the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture. The ministry will, in turn, forward the applicants’ credentials to their chosen institutions.

Applicants are, therefore to; submit only one complete dossier and ensure they use only their valid names.

Segment 2: Applicants that are nominated might be asked to partake in a written or oral examination in English as part of the application system. The institutions participating in the program will run a different assessment process and inform each candidate that comes out with success.

Even though the institutions will select applicants without the involvement of the FAO, successful applicants will be notified by the ministry.
