Mission Statement

The Kellner Foundation's Scholarship Program is dedicated to supporting Hungarian university students who intend to play a leading role in the social, political or economic development of Hungary. The Scholarship provides the opportunity for Hungarian students to engage in the challenging academic and extracurricular life of a top-ranking U.S. liberal arts college for one academic year.

Successful candidates for the Kellner Scholarships are achievement-oriented, highly motivated individuals with an outstanding academic record. Applicants are expected to have a determination to actively contribute to a prosperous, tolerant and democratic Hungarian society by translating academic knowledge into action, and bringing positive change in such areas as education, law, business, public service, journalism, medicine, the humanities and the arts upon their return to Hungary.
