The Hungarian Genius Program is financed from EU funds. The total budget of this network-building project is 2.4 million Euros spent in the 2009-2011 period. In addition to this funding, some 210 talent support organisations, mainly schools and NGO-s have received an additional 8.3 million Euros (ca. 40,000 Euros/institution) of EU funding to help their local talent support initiatives.
The National Talent Program is mostly financed by the National Talent Fund, which allocates this money through a wide range of calls for project proposals. In 2010 2.8 million Euros of this resource is made available to talent support programs in Hungary and in the Hungarian inhabited regions of the neighbouring countries.
