Student Family Support

From the Academic Year 2017-2018, CEU and the Dean of Students Office are introducing the Student Family Support (SFS) for Student Parents. The goal of this program is to help full-time, enrolled students (regardless of their financial aid package) with children residing in Hungary cope with the challenges of raising children while studying. We provide 500,000 HUF per academic year, paid in monthly installments, including summer months, for students with children up to the age of 14.

 To receive the SFS stipend, eligible students should declare that no state childcare support OR less amount than the SFS assistance is provided for them in their respective home countries. For Hungarian students: if CEU’s support exceeds the amount they receive per year from the Hungarian State, they will receive the difference from CEU. Students are required to apply for the support at the beginning of each academic year by filling out an SFS application form and providing the necessary documents. MA students are eligible to receive the assistance for the duration of their studies. PhD students can receive this support for a period of 36 months along with their assigned stipends.
