The Hungarian-Missouri Educational Partnership (HMEP) helps to build and strengthen the educational, cultural, and business relationships between the U.S. and Central Europe.
Scholarships are at the heart of the program, bringing promising Hungarian college graduates to the U.S. for post-graduate study at leading Midwestern business schools. HMEP recruits students, based on their academic excellence and financial need, who seek to fully understand the global marketplace and the free enterprise system and apply that understanding to international entrepreneurship and commerce. This program provides them a life-changing experience.
HMEP further creates global connections through undergraduate and faculty exchange programs and study abroad programs with partner universities.
HMEP creates a pipeline of students seeking higher education and work experience in the United States before returning home to pursue their individual careers. The goal is to shape emerging leaders who will create a lasting bond between the U.S. and Central Europe.
In 2005, with the support and encouragement of our U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, the Honorable George H. Walker, we formed the Hungarian-Missouri Educational Partnership (HMEP.)
Our vision for this not-for-profit organization was to partner with others in the U.S. and Central Europe including universities and businesses with a goal to invest in young people in order to create global connections through business and a better understanding of our free enterprise system.
Thank you to all of our supporters who have helped to make our vision a reality.
Chair, Hungarian-Missouri Educational Partnership
