Enabled by the generous support of the Budapester Foundation, the University of London is pleased to announce the availability of a new undergraduate scholarship, delivered through distance-learning and in partnership with London School of Economics and Political Science, for the 2024-25 academic year.  

As stated in the will of Federico Zichy Thyssen and the charitable objectives of the Budapester Foundation, the scholarship will be awarded by the University to a student either resident in, or from Hungary.   

The Budapester Foundation has three fundamental pillars, outlined in its founding statutes: 

  • the protection of endangered wildlife; 
  • the promotion of education through university scholarships; 
  • the support of non-profit foundations or entities that carry out charitable works in African communities. 

Education is an essential pillar for the Foundation, operating under the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to learn and grow, regardless of their background. This directly supports the University of London’s mission to be the UK’s leading provider of distance learning worldwide, ensuring that we continue to increase the number of people around the world who can benefit most from education.  

The Budapester Foundation scholarship will cover tuition fees for a student embarking on one of our distance-learning programmes, delivered under academic direction from the London School of Economics and in partnership with 2U. These programmes include:  

  • BSc in Economics 
  • BSc in Economics and Management 
  • BSc in International Relations
