The Roma Education Fund's RomaVersitas summit began yesterday in Budapest and ends tomorrow. Approximately 60 Romaversitas students from Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldova and Serbia, countries where REF supports RomaVersitas Student Centers, are participating in the three-day summit.

The students are enrolled in liberal arts programs at universities across the region. During the summit they will meet with donors supporting the REF program, attend talks by business leaders, and network with educators and public policy designers.  

The summit is intended to provide students with a platform for international collaboration academically and to help them develop links between various programs promoting the educational success of Romani people. The summit will offer capacity-building, personal development and team-building opportunities.  

RomaVersitas provides academic services and support to Romani university students through extracurricular activities, mentoring and tutoring. The program is an important bridge between completing university and accessing the labor market; 490 Romani university students total were supported by the program in 2014.
