A draft decree to be discussed at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday would reduce the number of students who receive full scholarship to attend institutions of higher education in the autumn semester to 30,000, but offer half scholarships to 15,000 students, daily Magyar Nemzet said.

Hungarian institutions of higher education accepted 53,450 students on scholarship last autumn.

The draft would cut the number of students on full scholarship by almost 60% in the area of economics, by 40% in the technical sciences and by 30% in the area of medical studies.
