After 13 years of investing in human capital, more than 400 alumni, and many success stories, we are no longer accepting scholarship applications for the Professional Internship and Senior Fellows programs. Please monitor this website for further programming.




The HAESF Professional Internship Program, endowed by U.S. Treasury funds, grants fully funded 6 month internships at prominent American companies to the most accomplished young talent from Hungary.

The goal of the program is to provide promising future leaders of Hungarian society an opportunity to have a meaningful international training experience, thereby enhancing their contribution to their home country and its development upon their return. Selected Fellows will be placed in career-related internships that further their professional and personal development, provide them with leadership and cross-cultural communication skills, improve their English language acquisition and help them advance as they attend graduate school and enter the work force at home.



The Hungarian-American Enterprise Scholarship Fund’s (HAESF) objective is to promote free enterprise and development in Hungary and to continue to strengthen ties between the United States and Hungary by creating opportunities for accomplished Hungarians and those of great promise to gain professional experience in the United States, thereby enhancing their contribution to Hungarian society.
