Semiha (Semi) is one of the 17 Albanian Roma students who have got admitted to the Program over the 17 years. Semi has all the characteristics we are looking for in RGPP students. She is a highly independent, hard working person. She knows what she wants and is continuously looking for opportunities to grow. She is committed to encouraging young Roma girls to continue their education. While she considers her work for UNDP as one of her greatest privileges, she finds it equally exciting to develop relations with her new Turkish Roma community and engage in the daily interaction with Roma children and other volunteers. Currently she is a RES grantee working at a Turkish Roma organization, where she tutors students. Why to apply to RGPP? Semi says: "Students who have been and will be there are lucky." For me RGPP is a way towards success and possibilities."
In December 2019, CEU Executive MBA Program, with the support of CEU Romani Studies Program, established a highly competitive, merit-based Fellowship for a Promising Romani Manager from Czechia, Hungary or Slovakia.
