Mentorship Support for Roma Students Enrolled in Medical Studies  

The Mentorship Support project will complement the Roma Scholarship Program which will be implemented in the framework of the Active Citizens Fund in Bulgaria. It will provide scholars with valuable mentorship support in the form of personal advice and professional guidance, which are important to career development and life success.

The project will allow Roma medical students to get valuable mentorship support. On average, it will support 40 students and 20 mentors per year until 2024. An estimated 54 unique Roma students will receive mentorship support, to help them successfully graduate from medical universities and colleges so that they contribute to a new, strong generation of Roma health professionals.
