Are you proud of your Hungarian roots? Would you like to learn more about Hungarian culture, education, and society while enjoying a two-week-long journey in Budapest? Then Reconnect Hungary is the perfect community for you. Enjoy all these benefits and gain a once in a lifetime experience with the Hungarian Birthright Program.
Since 1976, the New York-based Hungarian Human Rights Foundation has been working hard to deepen Hungarian-American connections. On the basis of this principle, they created the unmissable educational and social immersion program, the Hungarian Birthright Trip. The special educational program is from the mastermind of Allison Pataki, a New York Times best-selling author, whose primary mission is to provide an opportunity for young adults of Hungarian-American origin to learn more about their Hungarian roots and deepen their knowledge about the local culture and heritage.
The special program of ReConnect Hungary consists of three phases, during which
participants can visit Budapest and become a valued member of the global Hungarian community.
The Hungarian Birthright Program is available for young adults of Hungarian-Americans/Canadian decent, between the ages of 18 and 28. Applicants can enjoy the following benefits of the unique scholarship program: pre-trip online course, orientation day in New York, roundtrip airfare, and taxes between New York and Budapest, the transportation and accommodation fees, three meals a day, all entrance fees to museums and historical sites, as well as tour guides in Hungary.
After the pre-trip preparation, participants can take part in a two-week-long journey from New York to Budapest. This educational trip enables them to discover the cultural and historical treasures of Budapest and learn more about their Hungarian roots. In addition, the Hungarian Birthright Program provides them an opportunity to strengthen their Hungarian identity and become a valued member of the global Hungarian community. The program is supported by Hungarian, American, and Canadian organisations and the Government of Hungary.
If you would like to strengthen your dual identity and get a once in a lifetime experience in Hungary, do not wait any longer.
Applications are opening soon for next year’s Birthright trip that will take place between 28th July and 12th August 2022.
After the unforgettable two-week-long trip in Hungary, your journey will still go on with the ReConnect community. Thanks to this social network, you can stay connected to the global Hungarian community and deepen your Hungarian connections with the ReConnect Hungary Team.
