After a two-year interval caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Kőrösi Csoma Sándor programme supporting diaspora Hungarians and the Petőfi Sándor programme for small ethnic Hungarian communities in the Carpathian Basin are restarting, the state secretary in charge of policies for Hungarian communities abroad, Árpád János Potápi, told a press conference. Applications are invited from Hungarians aged twenty or above who are dedicated to the Hungarian nation and have experience in organising communities. In the 2022/2023 round of applications, a total of 75 people will be given scholarships from the northern hemisphere under the arrangements of the Kőrösi Csoma programme for sending young Hungarians to teach diaspora communities around the world, he said. Additionally, 50 people will be offered scholarships under the arrangements of the Petőfi programme, he said.
