The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Regional Office for the Near East and North Africa on Tuesday said Egyptian university graduates would benefit from postgraduate scholarships offered by the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture, a statement by FAO reported.
Senior advisor to FAO Regional Representative Nabil Gangi said that for the past eight years, the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture was offering scholarships for post graduate studies, according to a global agreement with FAO.
He added that the regional office succeeded in expanding the list of eligible countries to include some in the region of the Near East and North Africa, namely Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan.
These scholarships will cover the Master of Science degree in Agricultural sciences, Agricultural biotechnology, Horticulture, Animal nutrition and feed safety courses, offered in English for the 2016-2017 Academic Year.
Gangi noted that FAO has already informed the ministries of agriculture in the eligible countries, as well as more than 20 public and private universities in order to ensure the highest participation of eligible students and alumni.
Students from eligible countries, who are fluent in English and did not exceed 30 years of age, are free to apply by sending the duly filled application with the necessary supporting documents to a FAO official e-mail.
The scholarship will cover the application and tuition fees throughout the study period, basic books and notes, dormitory accommodation and subsistence costs.
