      1. Thank you. I just sent the e-mail regarding the remuneration. Unfortunately, it is an aspect I have to take in consideration! This internship is a great chance!

        Best regards, Maria

  1. Hi Maria,

    the cost of living in Plovdiv is not high at all. You probably need about 200-300 euro per month to live without having to worry you won't have enough money.

    1. Dear Rima,

      Yes, the opportunity should be still available. Organizers do not mention any nationality restrictions. For any concerns you might have you can check with the responsible contact person.

      Best regards,
      Mladiinfo team
