Merit Scholarship

The Milestone Institute is a centre of advanced studies, founded to nurture the intellectual development of gifted students and inspire them in their pursuit of academic excellence. Our mission is to act as a catalyst of societal progress by offering the brightest students in Hungary an internationally recognised education programme.

Here at Milestone we believe in achievement, aspiration, potential. We are dedicated to the development of young people to create future leaders and we believe in rewarding those who have demonstrated exceptional intellectual development and achievement. Milestone is delighted to award fee-waiver scholarships for those eligible students entering the Senior Year.

Our Merit Scholarship holders have generally excelled at national, regional and international Academic Olympiad competitions. Scholarships are also awarded based on past achievements and consistently high academic performance. Scholarships will be awarded as a percentage of the programme cost, from 10% to 100%.

Please note that Merit scholarships may be revoked and subject to repayment if the student’s performance is found to be unsatisfactory.
