Roma Scholarship program contributes toward the creation of a community of qualified health professionals who are not only motivated to contribute to solving the health issues surrounding the Roma communities, but will also become role models for aspiring Roma youth.
The beneficiaries of the program will receive scholarship support for the period of one academic year as well as mentorship support from experienced health professionals. Additionally, the scholars will have the opportunity to apply for financial support to implement their own small projects, such as campaigns to raise awareness of common diseases or to improve the health situation of the Roma.
The scholarship program was launched in the 2018-2019 academic year and will have a duration of six years. Approximately 240 annual scholarships will be awarded within the six-year period. Each individual scholarship will amount to between EUR 2350 and EUR 2650 depending on the discipline of the studies.
