Around 26,500 students have participated in a state-supported program that places them in temporary jobs this summer, the Technology and Industry Ministry said in a post on Facebook on Friday.
The ministry noted that the original HUF 2 billion allocation for the scheme this year was raised by close to 50% early in July.
Almost 4,500 employers have availed of the subsidies this summer.
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.
The summer jobs scheme has supported the employment of about 270,000 students with close to HUF 27 bln in subsidies since its launch in 2013.
