When we set out to focus our activities for the next five years at HIF on the next generation of Hungarian and American students and young professionals, we knew the return on our investments will be high.

2018 Annual Report

2018 Annual Report

Few organizations have the luxury of planning for and investing in the future of Hungarian-American people to people relations like we do.
2018 was a year when we launched two new programs with the long term goal of selecting, educating and engaging some of the brightest Hungarian leaders who, we hope, will play an important role in defending the best of the West.
Through our new Széll Kálmán Fellowship, a partnership with The Fund for American Studies, young Hungarians can now spend time interning, studying and networking in Washington through a world-class program. We also launched the Atlanticist Fellowship with the Atlantic Council as part of an effort to train and engage young Hungarian professionals in the transatlantic policy debate.
Through these new programs and our ongoing efforts, we have become a magnet for talent. We aim to leverage this unique opportunity in the upcoming years.
