President: Professor Péter Pete PhD, Head of the Economics Program, Faculty of Social Sciences, Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest

 

Mission: The main goal of the Foundation is (1) to support the research and teaching activities of professors and students, and the work of teaching assistants, (2) to raise funds for the stipends of excellent and/or socially handicapped students, (3) to back the publication of textbooks and other scientific studies.

 

Results: During the past decade, the Foundation contributed, besides the preparation of a great number of online curricula, to the translation and publication of three prominent textbooks:

 

  • N. Gregory Mankiw: Essentials of Economics
  • Zvi Bodie - David L. Cleeton - Robert C. Merton: Financial Economics
  • Stephen D. Williamson: Macroeconomics

 

In the same period, about 40 students and 40 teaching assistants received stipends from the Foundation. Many of the students continued their studies in graduate programs of leading universities (e.g., New York University, Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, London School of Economics).
