http://www.edupress.hu/hirek/index.php?HirID=32223&pid=egycikk - Hungarian educational news site edupress.hu reports: The Sigrid Rausing Trust has awarded CEU a €113,000 (£90,000) grant to support the CEU Roma Access Programs (RAP). Since 2006, the Trust has partnered with RAP on a variety of initiatives, ranging from student scholarships to internship support.

Over the next three years, the new grant will fund an internship program, piloted in 2014, for RAP students and alumni to enhance their academic and professional skills through real-world work experience. Additionally, Sigrid Rausing Trust will provide scholarships to students enrolling in RAP’s Roma English Language Program (RELP). Since 2011, this intensive 8-month English-language course for young Roma has helped enhance participants’ English language skills to the level necessary to upgrade their careers or pursue advanced educational study.
