Júlia Regényi visited the Wirth Institute to consult with Director Patrouch and visiting scholar Andrea Strutz concerning plans to develop a historical project dealing with the history of Hungarian immigration to Alberta. Ms Regényi is a graduate student studying International Affairs at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest and one of the recipients of this year's Kőrösi Csoma Sándor Scholarship funded by the Hungarian Ministry of Public Administration and Justice. Named after the nineteenth-century Hungarian philologist Alexander Csoma de Koros, this scholarship enables approximately fifty Hungarians to travel to Hungarian ethnic communities around the world to connect these communities more closely with the culture of the home country. Six scholarship recipients, including Ms Regényi, were assigned to communities in Canada.
