The Dr. Elemér and Éva Kiss Scholarship Program was established as a special memorial scholarship by the family and friends of Dr. Elemér and Éva Kiss, of Chevy Chase, MD.  Dr. and Mrs. Kiss, members of the Coalition since its founding in 1991, left Hungary after the 1956 Hungarian Revolution, and settled with their family in Maryland. They demonstrated a life-long commitment to education both in Hungary and in the United States.

The Hungarian American Coalition first established the Scholarship Fund in 1997, in response to requests from a large number of Hungarian students who had gained acceptance to American colleges and universities, but needed additional financial assistance to complete their studies.  Since then, the Coalition has provided partial scholarships each year to outstanding Hungarian students who pursue full-time studies in the United States. The scholarship is given to those who have already won admission to a U.S. university.  For more information, visit our website at
