The Pannonius Fellowship Program is a 5-month, full-time transatlantic fellowship opportunity for young leaders and scholars from the U.S. and Hungary. This fellowship serves to inspire and equip young leaders and scholars on both sides of the Atlantic with a fully funded research and study abroad experience. The program staff supports the fellows by providing orientation sessions, an ongoing platform to exchange ideas at bi-monthly meetings, as well as a continuous mentoring process. The forum and network for leaders in Hungary and America will work to provide lasting bridges between the two countries.
