Between 26,000 and 27,000 students are expected to participate in a state-supported program that places them in temporary jobs this summer, level with last year's number, state secretary Sándor Czomba said on public television on Tuesday.

The government is allocating HUF 3.5 bln in wage support for the scheme, Czomba said.

Under the program, local councils are eligible for subsidies covering 100% of payroll costs for students for two months, although work hours are limited to six a day.

Businesses in the farm, tourism, and catering sectors are eligible for subsidies covering 75% of payroll for students who can work up to eight hours a day.
