Mathias Corvinus Collegium (MCC) started its talent nurturing activities 25 years ago. Through its programs, it offers development opportunities to the most talented young Hungarians, regardless of their financial situation, from elementary school through university years to postgraduate studies.
The pillars of the MCC's talent development activities are the Young Talent Program for elementary school students, the High School Program focusing on the education of high school students, the University Program, and the subsequent postgraduate and postdoctoral programs.
MCC starts where traditional education ends: our programs go beyond the conventional school system and provide knowledge that our students can make use of in their own educational institutions.
The MCC Feszt initiative is based on a similar logic: we wanted to create an event that goes beyond a traditional festival. It offers not only popular music programs, but rather a community experience based on values, with exciting debates of public interest, interactive programs and Olympic coverage.
By October 2021, MCC will offer free educational programs in 14 cities in Hungary and 23 cities in the Carpathian Basin, which will be expanded to 35 Hungarian-inhabited cities across the Carpathian Basin over the next five years. Thereafter, 3,500 elementary school students, 4,000 high school students, 1,500 university students and 500 young people participating in other program will be offered development opportunities.
