Hungarian Roma begin internships at EU

Two young Romany women from Hungary began a two-month internship at the European Parliament yesterday as the first winners of grants offered by the European People's Party. Hungary's MEP Lívia Jaróka (herself a Romany) is patron of the program initiated with the support of the Robert Schuman Foundation. The goal of the program is to support the development of a Romany elite with a broad European outlook and knowledge of the EU. Roma from all EU members and aspirants may enter though they have to meet some tough conditions including a college degree in the social sciences, fluent English, and demonstrated activity in Romany public life.
