The Roma Education Fund hosted its third annual Roma Memorial University Scholarship Gala in Budapest on November 18, 2013. 134 Romani students were finalists for the award in Hungary this year. Among the highlights were motivational speeches by Ágnes Osztolykán, among the first of Hungary’s Romani female members of Parliament (LMP), and Béla Lakatos, the Romani mayor of Acs who has led a Hungarian majority constituency for many years. In addition to themes of empowerment and academic success, the audience was wooed with the roots music of Kalyi Jag, later wowed by Ferenc Molnár, or Caramel, one of Hungary’s leading popular musicians, and surprised by the educational message of a young collective of Romani poets led by Kristof Horvath.
