Lipót Schulhof (March 12, 1847 in Baja – October 1921 in Paris) (or, as written in Hungarian, Schulhof Lipót) was a Hungarian astronomer (from what was at the time Austria-Hungary). He was more commonly known as Leopold Schulhof (or Schulhoff), since German was the dominant language of Austria-Hungary at the time.
He studied comets and asteroids. He worked in Vienna and Paris (where he was known as Léopold Schulhof). He provided a prediction for the 1893 return of Comet 15P/Finlay, and was awarded the Lalande Prize of the French Academy of Sciences in that same year. Schulhof won the Lalande Prize again in 1920 for his calculation, assisted by Joseph Bossert, of the orbit of the comet (12P/Pons–Brooks) discovered in 1812 by Pons.
