Awards and Fellowships
The Peter Hangartner Fellowship
The Peter Hangartner Fellowship prize is one of the newest and most prestigious fellowships now available to CEU economics students. The Fellowship will be awarded annually to an outstanding second-year student in the economics department who earns the highest GPA during their first year of studies. The Fellowship consists of a full tuition waiver, accommodation in the dormitory, and a monthly stipend.
Peter Hangartner has been a significant contributor to the Open Society Foundations, serving both as a board member and a member of the Finance and Asset Management Committees. After his retirement in June 2009, the Open Society Foundations created a scholarship in his honor to be awarded annually for 10 years to the top second-year Master’s degree student in economics. The Fellowship covers university tuition fees and living expenses, adjusted each year according to the cost of living.
