The Hungarian Scholarship Fund (HSF) was established in 1999 by the late Dr. Béla and late April Bognár to help outstanding Hungarian students finish their educations in their own countries or in the United States, and to remain or return to their home countries to provide leadership in their communities. Since its inception, the scholarship fund has awarded more than $700,000 to 271 Hungarian students in the US and the Carpathian Basin raised from members of the Hungarian American community; churches; organizations; the Sunshine Lady Foundation (SLF); and recently, by the Ambassadors of the Future.
Scholarship recipients must have an excellent academic record, outstanding recommendations from teachers, mentors, clergy or community leaders, and proven financial need.
