‘Tomorrow belongs to you – for the creative talents of the future’ is a 18-month scholarship programme for disadvantaged high school students. Our mission is to put a creative career within their reach, and, by providing professional and mental preparation, help 25 young people each year to pass the admission entrance examination.

“In the 2020s, Hungarian economy, and the Hungarian creative industries in particular, are facing major demographic challenges, while substantial areas of the country and segments of society remain invisible to higher education.


This paradox can only be resolved with great care and targeted programmes.

We are now making an innovative and exemplary attempt that can benefit not only the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, but other higher education institutions and the whole of Hungary.”

Gergely Böszörményi-Nagy

President of the MOME Foundation, concept owner of the programme

Providing an opportunity for 23 young talents from Hungary’s poorest regions to pursue creative studies, the Tomorrow belongs to you – For the creative talents of the future programme launched on 9 February with a host of community and professional activities, and a tour of Budapest.

As one of the most significant social responsibility commitments in the history of MOME, in the summer of 2023, we announced a unique, comprehensive nation-wide scholarship and talent program in Hungarian higher education titled "Tomorrow belongs to you – For the creative talents of the future’. The program aims to support and guide students from disadvantaged backgrounds, ensuring their journey to a successful university admission.

80 high schoolers from all over the country have applied to the ‘Tomorrow belongs to you – For the creative talents of the future’ scholarship programme of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. The mission of the initiative launched jointly by the Foundation for Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design and MOME is to create opportunities for young talents living in Hungary’s poorest regions to pursue creative studies.

As a leading design and innovation hub of the CEE region, the mission of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) is to create opportunities for high school talents in Hungary’s poorest regions by putting a creative career within their reach. In what is one of the most important social responsibility commitments in its history, the university announced the ‘Tomorrow belongs to you – For the creative talents of the future’, a comprehensive, nation-wide scholarship and talent programme, earlier this year. Following up on its undertaking, MOME is sending out a team of experts to visit high schools in disadvantaged towns and villages across the country to meet the students in person. Nomination and application for the programme are ongoing.
