During these discussions, you get to know a new generation of the Budapest Fellowship program, conducted by the Hungary Foundation and the Mathias Corvinus Collegium. A handful of American fellows spend almost a year in Hungary to conduct research, teach, and immerse themselves in the history and culture of the nation. With our special guest, Stephen Sholl, we look back back at the beginnings of the Budapest Fellowship Program in 2021. During our discussion, Stephen shares his first steps in the new country, the challenges he has managed to overcome since his arrival and why he decided to stay here with us.
