This sector is for anyone, who is leading a Hungarian community in the United States, a member of such a community, or an expert in this area. During this Summit, they will learn about the collaboration of the Hungarian and American communities, and will get an insight of opportunities of grants and sponsorships.

We are offering this area to individuals and institution leaders, so they are able to gain knowledge of scholarships and student exchange programs. Hungarian and American leaders of higher education will be able to build relationships to aim for a collaboration in the near future. The goal is for both sides to learn about several grant opportunities and information.
The Hungarian Summit is for those professionals and start-up companies, who already started their businesses in the United States, or are planning to start one. As a business professional, you will be able to attend panel discussions and workshops, which are led by successful business owners and the area’s best experts.
