At the event, Dr. Oszkár Ökrös, Deputy State Secretary of the Ministry of Agriculture, greeted the newly graduated students. With the joint scholarship program with the FAO, the Hungarian Government wants to help the well-educated graduate workforce to contribute to the sustainable development of their country’s agriculture and thus indirectly to the reduction of emigration, said the Deputy State Secretary. The Hungarian-FAO scholarship program has been operating since 2007, and since then it has been successfully supporting young people from developing countries to receive high-level agricultural training in Hungary.

Almost 400 students have graduated as part of the scholarship program, and the number of participating countries is increasing every year

The goal of the scholarship program is for well-educated, graduate professionals to contribute to the sustainable development of agriculture in developing countries. The majors participating in the program change every year. In 2024, the master’s fields of environmental engineering, crop production engineering and horticultural engineering were announced.
