The Hungarian government has doubled the amount of funds allocated to the scheme that supports Hungarian education and culture in communities beyond the borders.
According to MTI, the funds will be doubled to HUF 2 billion (EUR 6m) in 2020.
The scheme aims to promote prosperity of Hungarians living in their motherland, develop and nurture their relations with Hungary and strengthen their Hungarian national identity by supporting education and culture.
The money is divided between a central fund operated by the PM’s Office and a foundation that awards grants on a regional basis.
