FAO - Hungarian scholarship for the postgraduate study of agriculture

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in cooperation with the Hungarian Government has opened the scholarship programme application for the post-graduate study of agriculture.

The two-year scholarship finances post-graduate studies in agriculture-related disciplines for promising students from developing and middle-income countries. This year, the courses offered will focus on animal husbandry, agriculture water management, and environmental engineering. The prestigious Universities of Debrecen and the Szent István will be hosting the scholarships.

FAO’s Regional Office in the Near East and North Africa (NENA) has succeeded in expanding the programme in the region for the past years where several students from different countries have benefited from the scholarship. Currently, the programme has grown to include students from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Sudan and Yemen.

“This programme is a valuable opportunity for youth in the region to acquire the education and knowledge that would help them develop the food and agriculture industry in their countries. The NENA region faces many challenges and bright minds equipped with the right tools would certainly bring about considerable development,” said Nabil Gangi, FAO Deputy Regional Representative.

The scholarship also aims at providing youth with a competitive edge in the job market while offering them a global professional network: their fellow scholars and their professors.

Gangi added that FAO invites the ministries of agriculture as well as public and private universities in the concerned countries to disseminate the news to ensure the highest participation of eligible students and alumni.

All expenses are covered in the programme, including application and tuition fees, basic books, dormitory accommodation, subsistence costs, and health insurance.

The deadline for submitting applications is 28 February 2018, for the academic year starting autumn 2018.
