  3. BEAUMONT – The Lamar women’s tennis team strengthened its roster with the addition of three standouts Friday morning. Denise Simonetti (Italy), Ana Jolic (Serbia) and Jayci Wong (Nederland) will continue their education and play tennis for the Cardinals, head coach David Wong announced. If the last two names sound familiar that is because they already have a connection to the program. Jolic is the younger sister of junior Sanja Jolic, while Wong is the daughter of the coach. The 2019 incoming class brings with it an international and local flair. Simonetti comes to the Golden Triangle from Italy, while Jolic is a native of Serbia. Wong was one of the state’s top players representing Nederland High School for the past four seasons. “I’m very excited about this signing class,” said Wong. “We’ve added three players each with different strengths which I believe will help our program. Ana is the younger sister of Sanja and will be a strong addition to the squad. We’ve known about her for awhile and she will be able to come in and help right away. Simonetti comes to us with a similar Italian ranking as Bianca (Vitale) last year, and I believe she can have a similar impact on our team. “Obviously, this is a special day for my family. I’m so very proud to have my daughter joining our roster. She has wanted to be a Cardinal her whole life and has grown up around the program. She brings with her a strong skill set which I believe could really help this team in doubles,” added Wong. Wong comes to LU after a standout career at Nederland. A former SETCA Tennis Player of the Year, Wong closed her prep career by qualifying for the state tournament three times – including this past season where she advanced to the semifinals in doubles. A three-time team MVP, Wong won district during her rookie season advancing to the state finals after posting a 33-2 (.943) overall record. Wong’s rookie season was a sign of things to come has she won the district title all four seasons. She wrapped up her high school career with more than 100 wins compared to only 11 setbacks. Jolic has been one of the top Serbian junior players throughout her career. Ranked third nationally in the U10 level, she remained among the nation’s top 10 at the U12 level. She has been selected among the nation’s top five most talented players. Currently ranked among the nation’s top 20, she has posted three runner-up finishes in the competitive Vojvodina tournament. Simonetti comes to the Golden Triangle sporting a 2.6 national ranking from Italy – a ranking that has produced several top NCAA Division I talents from Italy. Over the course of the past two seasons, Simonetti has won several open tournaments as well as posting strong results in some ITF tournaments. She also battled back to win the consolation UTR draw at a national tournament in Milan. https://www.panews.com/2019/08/17/jayci-wong-joins-dads-team-at-lamar/

  6. Valparaiso University head men’s tennis coach Jim Daugherty has announced the addition of Andrej Kalenic (Belgrade, Serbia / Kreativno Pero), who joins the program as a freshman for the 2019-2020 season. Kalenic, who has been playing tennis since age 12, was touted as one of the best in his country under 18. He was in the Top 10 under 18 and was in the Top 20 as a senior. He owns victories over players with Universal Tennis Ratings (UTRs) of 11 and 12. “Andrej is a great addition for our team,” Daugherty said. “He suffered an injury last year, which did not do his rankings justice, but he is recovered and stronger than ever. He is a team player who will be a positive influence on our team dynamic. We look forward to welcoming Andrej into our Valpo tennis family.” Kalenic said he selected Valpo because he believes it’s a great place to improve his academic and athletic career. He intends to study in business. Kalenic, who has won regional tournaments in his country, has three sisters – Marija, Darija and Isidora. His father Dejan is a dentist and his mother Jelena is a photographer. Kalenic joins Philipp Leithold (Esslingen, Germany / Theodor-Huess Gymnasium) and Oscar Mendoza (Guayaquil, Ecuador / Interamerican Academy) to make up a three-member freshman class for the 2019-2020 season. The team has a unique blend of youth and experience with five seniors and three freshmen comprising the roster. http://www.valpoathletics.com/mtennis/news/2019-20/19198/daugherty-welcomes-kalenic-to-valpo-mens-tennis-program/

Tips for Proposal Preparation 1. Read and follow all guidelines. Many proposals are disqualified each year because applicants omit a key step in the guidelines or ignore instructions. If the applicant is unsure whether she is qualified to apply, email aauw@applyists.com for assistance. 2. Proofread all work thoroughly. Proposals that are unclear or contain numerous mistakes distract the reviewer from focusing on the content and reflect poorly on the author’s ability to produce a high-quality product. Check to be sure that sentences are complete, clear, and grammatically correct. 3. Have someone else read the completed proposal. An objective reader can often identify areas that need more explanation and may find errors the applicant has overlooked. 4. Be concise. Reviewers must read dozens of proposals. Proposals that are clear and concise are more compelling.

  19. Named in honor of NED’s principal founders, former president Ronald Reagan and the late congressman Dante Fascell (D-Fl.), the Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is a federally funded, international exchange program that offers democracy activists, journalists, civil society leaders, and scholars from around the world the opportunity to spend five months in residence at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), in Washington, D.C., in order to undertake independent research on democracy in a particular country or region. Located within NED’s INTERNATIONAL FORUM FOR DEMOCRATIC STUDIES, a leading center for analysis of global democratic developments, the program provides a collegial environment and rich intellectual setting for educational exchange and professional development. The program offers five-month fellowships for practitioners to improve strategies and techniques for building democracy abroad and five-month fellowships for scholars to conduct original research for publication. While in residence, fellows reflect on their experiences; engage with counterparts; conduct research and writing; consider best practices and lessons learned; and develop professional relationships within a global network of democracy advocates. Fellows are expected to complete a written product relating to their proposed research project. The fellowship culminates in a formal presentation in which fellows typically focus on their research project or another topic relating to the state of democracy in their country. All applicants should: -Demonstrate proficiency in the English language -Propose a project focusing on the political, social, economic, legal or cultural aspects of democratic development -Be available to work in residence at the International Forum for Democratic Studies in Washington, D.C. during the 5 month fellowship period (October 1-February 28 or March 1-July 31).

Once you have set up an account, the application process requires you to submit: 1. Applicant information 2. Project proposal for the practitioner or the scholarly fellowship track 3. Letters of recommendation 4. Resume/CV and Biography Please submit all application materials in English. The Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellows Program is now accepting applications for 2020-2021 fellowships. Applications are due by October 1, 2019 and letters of recommendation are due by October 8, 2019. Program Activities: Through its calendar of seminars, roundtables, field trips, and other events, the program seeks to: (a) build knowledge about the work of the Endowment and its core institutes; (b) provide education concerning democracy through field trips and seminars; (c) support outreach for dialogue and interaction with the governmental, nongovernmental, academic, and media communities around town and beyond; and (d) promote a sense of collegiality among fellows as a group. In addition, fellows benefit from the many informal social and cultural activities that the program has to offer, including trips to sporting events, museums, movies, and happy hours. Financial Support: Each fellow receives a monthly stipend for living expenses, plus basic health insurance and roundtrip travel to and from Washington, D.C., at the beginning and end of the fellowship period. Fellowship payments are calculated to cover cost of a short-term, furnished rental apartment, plus “cost of living” for food, local transportation, and other necessities. Fellows are provided with a fully equipped office, plus a limited budget for long-distance phone calls and professional travel within the United States. Please note that fellows who wish to bring family members with them to Washington, D.C., will be expected to cover the costs of their dependents’ roundtrip travel and stay within the United States. Research Associates: Research associates are assigned to work with several fellows and provide critical support in a variety of ways: consulting with fellows on the shape and direction of their projects, providing research, written, and editorial support on issues relating to the theory and practice of democracy, facilitating outreach, aiding in the preparation and follow-up of fellows’ public presentations, and providing other assistance as necessary. Democracy Resource Center: Housed at NED, the Democracy Resource Center (DRC) is staffed by four librarians and contains approximately 20,000 works, including books, journals, grantee reports, and other publications on democracy. Visas: Prior to their arrival in the United States, prospective fellows who are neither citizens nor permanent residents of the United States must obtain a J-1 exchange visitor visa in order to travel to the United States. Accompanying family members must obtain a J-2 visa. Fellowship applicants cannot have participated in a J-1 research scholar program within the 24 months immediately preceding their Reagan-Fascell fellowship. Fellows who are sponsored on our J-1 visa are typically required by U.S. law to return to their home country for two years following the completion of their fellowship before they may apply for an H visa, an L visa, or for legal permanent residence.

  24. Naknade za međunarodne studente i studente na razmeni u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama biće povećane od 24. juna 2019. godine, saopštila je američka Agencija za imigraciju i carinu (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Glavna promena je veća cena za formular SEVIS koji svaki strani student u Americi mora da plati pre izdavanja vize. Naknada za I-901 SEVIS za F i M studentske vize će umesto 200 dolara od juna koštati 350 dolara. Cena za I-901 SEVIS za J studente u programima "au pair", za savetnike u kampovima i letnje "work&travel" programe ostaće ista, 35 američkih dolara. Svi ostali korisnici J viza plaćaće 220 dolara umesto dosadašnjih 180 dolara. SEVIS naknada plaća se u okviru programa SEVP (Student and Exchange Visitor Program) koji služi za nadzor stranih studenata u Americi i sertifikaciju institucija koje ih primaju na dalje obrazovanje.

  25. TOEFL - test kojim se proverava znanje engleskog jezika pred upis univerziteta i koledža u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu od 1. avgusta će promeniti izgled. Kako je najavio ETS, američka kompanija koja organizuje test, TOEFL iBT će biti kraći u pojedinim delovima i ukupno bi trebalo da traje 3 sata. Najavljene izmene: ČITANJE: Umesto 12, 13 ili 14 pitanja koja su se do sada pojavljivala na svakoj sekciji, sada će ih biti samo 10. SLUŠANJE: Trenutno na ovoj sekciji kandidate čeka između 4 i 6 lekcija i po šest pitanja na svakoj od njih. Izmenama će biti dostupne samo 3 ili 4 lekcije. Broj konverzacija koje se slušaju ostaje isti - 2 ili 3 i broj pitanja ostaje isti - 5 po svakoj konverzaciji. GOVOR: Trenutna verzija ima šest zadataka, od kojih su dva nezavisna, a četiri integrisana, sa čitanjem i slušanjem. U novoj verziji testa kandidate čekaju četiri zadatka - jedan nezavisni i tri integrisana. PISANJE: Bez promena. Druga velika promena koju je najavio ETS je mogućnost kombinovanja najboljih rezultata sa više polaganih testova - MyBest Scores. Zvanične informacije o promenama dostupne su vam na stranici https://www.ets.org/toefl/better_test_experience .

  28. Anyone working to become a CPA has to be able to see whether things add up. For Milica Maras, Governors State University provided the ideal equation—a place where she could play volleyball and earn her Bachelor of Science in Accounting degree. The combination proved such a good fit that Maras not only became GSU’s first international athlete, she won awards as she earned a perfect GPA. Raised in Serbia, Maras attended a specialized high school in Belgrade that focused on business and law where she was introduced to accounting. An avid athlete, she also wanted to continue playing volleyball when she headed to college, but that was an opportunity only available in the U.S., she said. Maras came to the U.S. to study at a small college in Texas, which offered her a full scholarship. Soon after arriving, she longed for a larger university and discovered GSU through a Google search for schools with both an accounting program and a NCAA or NAIA volleyball team. The search netted great results, and the transition from a small college in the South to a regional institution was as smooth as her serve. “I didn’t find it hard to blend in at GSU,” Maras said. “Everyone was interested in where I came from, and people would ask me to teach them a few Serbian words.” Maras lived at Prairie Place, sharing the kitchen with students from India and cooking food that intrigued the American students who stopped by to heat up a quick dinner. “They would pop something in the microwave and say, ‘What are you making? That smells good,’” she laughed. In exploring accounting classes, Maras encountered university Lecturer Michael Trendell, whose combination of textbook lessons with real-life examples in his auditing course helped Maras refine her professional goals. “He got me interested in auditing because he had many examples from his work life, and that really made sense to me,” she said. “He also made it very clear what was important, which is really helpful when you’re an international student.” Maras also found a home on the women’s volleyball team, sporting number seven on her Jaguar jersey. Her prowess on the court, where she set records, was matched by her success in the classroom, where she earned a 4.0 GPA, leading to an NAIA-Daktronics Scholar-Athlete Award from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, one of 14 selected out of approximately 2,300 NAIA women’s volleyball players. Maras also was named to the Google Cloud Academic All-American NAIA Volleyball second team, drawing attention from the local news media. While some students struggle to keep all the balls in the air, Maras readily shares her secret. “It’s all about organization,” she said. “If you’re organized, you can do anything you want.” Maras seems to manage a full schedule of classes and practice and still found time to serve as president of the International Culture Organization, which promotes diversity on campus. “As an international student, it gives you a chance to be yourself and also an opportunity to learn about others,” she said. During the club’s annual fashion show one year, she said, “I was wearing traditional Serbian dress with another Serbian girl, walking down the red carpet to traditional music. We started dancing to it, and pretty soon everyone was dancing, including President (Elaine) Maimon,” she said. After graduation, Maras plans to work for a year, then head to graduate school before becoming a CPA, and heading back to Serbia. “I want to work as a graduate assistant, hopefully at GSU,” she said. “I always tell people that this is a university that’s big enough to matter, but small enough to care about you,” she said. Seems like a great balance for this future CPA.
