  4. Priprema za SAT, ispit potreban za upis koledža i univerziteta u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u utorak, 21. avgusta 2018. godine i traje šest nedelja, do 27. septembra 2018. Priprema je neznatno kraća u odnosu na redovnu, ali se broj radnih sati ne razlikuje. Tokom svake sedmice predavanja se održavaju utorkom i četvrtkom po dva sata, a u kalendar će zbog obima rada biti dodato i nekoliko subotnjih termina. Tokom avgusta se predavanja održavaju samo od 16:00, a kada počne školska godina u septembru predavanja se održavaju pre podne od 10:00 i popodne od 16:00 sati. Predavanja su potpuno ista i sami kandidati odlučuju na koji termin časova mogu da dođu. Nakon uplate prve rate dobija se jedna od dostupnih knjiga za pripremu koja služi kao referentno sredstvo i udžbenik za deo vežbanja. Kandidati će tako dobiti izdanje Princeton Review "Cracking the SAT", a tokom priprema će dobijati i materijal koji je sastavljen od originalnog sadržaja sastavljenog u Centru i od najboljih delova dostupne literature za pripremu testa. Ukoliko se ukaže potreba da se dodatno vežba, Centar može da obezbedi dodatne praktične zadatke i instrukcije bez dodatne naplate. Tokom priprema organizuju se tri kompletna probna testa koje će naši predavači oceniti i objasniti kandidatima koje se greške moraju ispraviti kako bi se poboljšao rezultat. Kada se pripreme završe, kandidati i dalje mogu da vežbaju kod nas bez ikakvog plaćanja i da se konsultuju sa predavačima oko delova testa koji im mogu biti problematični. Priprema košta 48,000 dinara i plaća se u dve rate. Prvi deo u iznosu od 30,000 dinara se plaća na početku, a drugi deo kada istekne prvi mesec priprema. Sam test ne ulazi u cenu priprema i mora se samostalno prijaviti na sajtu http://www.collegeboard.org i platiti kreditnom ili debitnom karticom kojom se može plaćati na Internetu. Broj mesta za testove je ograničen i savetujemo svim kandidatima da se za test prijave što je pre moguće. Na časovima se obrađuju sve sekcije ispita - jezički i matematički deo i pisanje eseja. Osim rada na samim časovima, dostupna vam je biblioteka resursa Centra u kojoj možete dodatno da vežbate bez dodatne nadoknade, a predavači uvek ostavljaju dosta vežbanja koja se mogu poneti i uraditi kod kuće.

  6. Through an international competition, the Center offers 9-month residential fellowships. The Wilson Center invites scholars, practitioners, journalists and public intellectuals to take part in its flagship international Fellowship Program. Fellows conduct research and write in their areas of interest, while interacting with policymakers in Washington and Wilson Center staff and other scholars in residence. The Center accepts policy-relevant, non-advocacy fellowship proposals that address key challenges confronting the United States and the world. About the Center The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars aims to unite the world of ideas to the world of policy by supporting pre-eminent scholarship and linking that scholarship to issues of concern to officials in Washington. Congress established the Center in 1968 as the official, national memorial to President Wilson. Unlike the physical monuments in the nation's capital, it is a living memorial whose work and scholarship commemorates "the ideals and concerns of Woodrow Wilson." As both a distinguished scholar and national leader, President Wilson felt strongly that the scholar and the policymaker were "engaged in a common enterprise." Today the Center takes seriously his views on the need to bridge the gap between the world of ideas and public policy, bringing them into creative contact, enriching the work of both, and enabling each to learn from the other. This continuing dialogue between public policy and scholarship makes the Center unique. In addition to its residential program, the Center conducts research through its programs, organizes conferences and seminars, and disseminates the content of its work and fellows’ research through its website and email marketing. The Center invites Fellows to take part in the Center’s conferences, meetings and seminars and to benefit from the wide range of dialogue that takes place at the Center. Application Process The Wilson Center invites scholars, practitioners, journalists and public intellectuals to take part in its flagship international Fellowship Program and to take advantage of the opportunity to engage actively in the Center’s national mission. The Center awards approximately 15-20 residential fellowships each year. Fellows will be affiliated with one or more of the Wilson Center programs/projects and are encouraged to interact with policy makers in Washington, D.C., with Wilson Center staff, and other scholars who are working on similar research and topics. Eligibility Citizens or permanent residents from any country (applicants from countries outside the United States must hold a valid passport and be able to obtain a J-1 visa even if they are currently in the United States) (Read more information on visas.) Men and women with outstanding capabilities and experience from a wide variety of backgrounds (including academia, business, government, journalism, law, and other professions) Academic candidates holding a Ph.D. or J.D. (degree must be received by the application deadline of October 1) Academic candidates demonstrating scholarly achievement by publications beyond their doctoral dissertations Practitioners or policymakers with an equivalent level of professional achievement English proficiency as the Center is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas among its fellows Ineligibility Applicants working on a degree (even if the degree is to be awarded prior to the proposed fellowship year) Proposals of a partisan or advocacy nature Primary research in the natural sciences Projects that create musical composition or dance Projects in the visual arts Projects that are the rewriting of doctoral dissertations The editing of texts, papers, or documents The preparation of textbooks, anthologies, translations, and memoirs Notes on Eligibility You do not need an institutional affiliation to apply. For most academic candidates, a book or monograph is required. Scholars and practitioners who previously held research awards or fellowships at the Wilson Center are not precluded from applying for a fellowship. However, the nature and recency of the prior award may be among the factors considered during the selection process, and by the Fellowship Committee of the Board of Trustees. If you have questions regarding your eligibility or the suitability of your project, please e-mail the Scholars and Academic Relations Office at fellowships@wilsoncenter.org. Selection Process Applications that satisfy the eligibility requirements are subsequently subjected to a multi-stage review process involving both internal evaluations by Wilson Center experts and external evaluations by specialists with relevant expertise. Final decisions about all grant awards are contingent on the approval of the Center’s Fellowship Committee of the Board of Trustees and subject to available funding. The basic criteria for selection are: a) significance of the proposed research, including the importance and originality of the project; b) the relevance of the project to contemporary policy issues; try to convince the reader that there is some urgency or importance in your work that can resolve a larger problem. c) the relevance of the project to the programmatic work of the Center; d) quality of the proposal in definition, organization, clarity, and scope; describe what the reviewers will learn from your project, why it is important, and how the reviewer will know your conclusions are valid. A clear hypothesis or step-by-step argument of a central problem helps capture the essence of your work for the reviewer. Also describe your methodology, i.e. how and why your approach is the best way to deal with such a problem. Since each field has different methodologies that the reviewer may not know, tell the reader what archives, sources, and techniques you plan to employ. e) capabilities and achievements of the applicant and the likelihood that the applicant will accomplish the proposed project; not only should your proposal demonstrate how you have the technical know-how and ability to reach some conclusion, but that the conclusion is not preconceived. The proposal should convince the reviewer that there is something genuinely at stake with your inquiry and that your project will yield interesting results. f) potential of a candidate to actively contribute to the life, priorities, and mission of the Center by making expert research accessible to a broader audience; remember that one of the Center's main goals is to help inform policymakers to make well-informed decisions. The Center welcomes in particular those projects that transcend narrow specialties and methodological issues of interest only within a specific academic discipline. Projects should involve fresh research-—in terms of both the overall field and the author’s previous work. It is essential that projects have relevance to public policy, and fellows should want, and be prepared, to interact with policymakers in Washington, Wilson Center staff, and other scholars who are working on similar issues. Some final tips--start your proposal early, and have friends or colleagues review it. Debate over your proposal will help you answer questions reviewers may have. Sharpen your language and style, especially your opening paragraph. Be to the point so that the reviewer knows exactly what you mean--the Center does not conduct interviews, so make sure that your proposal is clear and concise. Programs and Priorities The Center accepts policy-relevant, non-advocacy fellowship proposals that address key challenges confronting the United States and the world. Priority will be given to proposals which align with the programmatic work of the Center and can result in work that reaches a broad audience. Within this framework, the Wilson Center supports projects that intersect with contemporary policy issues and provide the historical and/or cultural context for some of today’s significant public policy debates. While in residence, Fellows will be affiliated with regional and/or topical programs working on issues that complement the Fellows’ projects. Program and project directors often collaborate with scholars in producing policy reports, op-eds, and other short written products and in designing seminars, conferences, and/or meetings related to scholars’ research. Learn more about each of the Center's programs. Fellows' Responsibilities Fellows are "scholars in residence," and are expected to be present at the Center and work from their assigned work space on most business days and to participate in appropriate meetings organized by the Center. Fellows are required to give a Work-in-Progress presentation, internal meeting where fellows can speak about their work, share ideas, and receive feedback from their peers, and to attend the Work-in-Progress presentations given by their colleagues. In addition, Fellows are encouraged to offer a presentation of their work publicly, where possible, and/or participate in other Center programming. The Center expects all Fellows to seek ways to share their expertise with the Washington policy community. The form of such interaction could range from a deep background briefing for an executive branch agency to an informal roundtable discussion with members of Congress and their staffs. Facilities and Services Each Fellow is assigned a furnished office available to him or her every day around the clock. The Center is located in the heart of Washington, D.C., and includes conference rooms, a reference library, and a dining room. The building is a smoke-free environment. The Wilson Center Library provides loan privileges with the Library of Congress and access to digital resources, its book and journal collections, and to university and special libraries in the area, and other research facilities. Windows-based personal computers are provided, and each Fellow is offered a part-time research assistant. Although Fellows are responsible for locating their own housing in the Washington, D.C. area, the Center provides written materials to help facilitate the search process. Stipend The Center tries to ensure that the fellowship award, when combined with the recipient’s other sources of income (e.g. other grants and sabbatical allowances), approximates an individual’s current level of income. Awards will also include round trip travel for Fellows. If spouses and/or dependent children will reside with the Fellow for the entire fellowship period, money for their travel will also be included. In addition to stipends and travel allowances, the Center provides 75 percent of health insurance premiums for fellows who elect Center coverage and for their accompanying family members. Length of Appointment Fellows are expected to be in residence for the entire U.S. academic year (early September through May). Occasionally, fellowships are awarded for shorter periods, with a minimum of four months. Fellowships may not be deferred. Conditions of Award Fellows must devote full time to the fellowship study and may not accept a teaching assignment, another residential fellowship, or undertake any other major activities that require absence from the Center during the tenure of their fellowship. In order to foster a true community of scholars, Fellows must devote a proportionate amount of time to the daily life of the Center. Applicants must notify the Center when they receive other sources of support, including other fellowships or foundation grants, which may affect their request for financial support from the Center. Once fellowships are awarded and at the Center’s (or Fellow’s) discretion, project titles may be modified to reflect the Center’s mandate to serve as a bridge between the world of learning and public policy. Deadline for Applications The Center holds one round of competitive selection per year. Fellowship applications must be postmarked or submitted online by October 1. Applicants are notified of the results of the selection process in March of the following year. Instructions for Applicants The Application Applicants may submit their applications online here. A complete application must include the following: the Fellowship Application Form; a current CV (not to exceed three pages); The Center will only accept the first three pages; please list your publications separately. a list of your publications that includes exact titles, names of publishers, dates of publication and status of forthcoming publications (not to exceed three pages); a Project Proposal (not to exceed five single-spaced typed pages, using 12-point type); The Center reserves the right to omit from review applications that are longer than the requested page length; a bibliography for the project that includes primary sources and relevant secondary sources (not to exceed three pages); the Financial Information Form; Two letters of reference.

Applications in all academic disciplines, professions, and creative arts are encouraged, and there are a few areas of special interest: Applications related to the broad theme of the human body, which is a one-year initiative across the programs of the Radcliffe Institute Applications that involve the study of women, gender, and society, which is a commitment rooted in Radcliffe’s unique history Applications that draw on the resources of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, which is part of the Radcliffe Institute and one of the foremost archives on women’s history Applications for the Mellon-Schlesinger Fellowship, part of the broader Long 19th Amendment Project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation The Institute seeks to build a community of fellows that is diverse in every way. Individual Applicants for the 2019–2020 Fellowship Year Our online application for the 2019–2020 fellowship year is now available. The deadline for individual applications in the creative arts, humanities, and social sciences is September 13, 2018. For applications in the natural sciences and mathematics, the deadline is October 4, 2018. Selection Process Former fellows of the Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program (2000 to present) are not eligible to apply. Each application is reviewed in a dual-tiered process by peers in relevant disciplines. Applications are judged on the quality and significance of the proposed project and the applicant’s record of achievement and promise. Applicants are notified by e-mail of the results of the selection process in March. Terms and Conditions Radcliffe Institute fellows are in residence for a period of nine months between September 1, 2019 and May 31, 2020 and receive a stipend of $77,500 plus an additional $5,000 to cover project expenses. Applicants may apply for either one or two semesters. Single-semester Radcliffe fellows receive a $38,750 stipend plus an additional $2,500 to cover project expenses. This is a residential fellowship; therefore, fellows are expected to reside in the Boston area for the duration of their time as Radcliffe fellows. Fellows are expected to be free of their regular commitments so they may devote themselves full time to the work outlined in their proposal. The Institute will provide office or studio space and access to libraries and other resources at Harvard University during the fellowship year. Radcliffe fellows may also be eligible to receive relocation, housing, and childcare funds to aid them in making a smooth transition to Radcliffe. Health care options are made available as needed.

  11. Top M.B.A. programs are known to evaluate applicants based on their grades, test scores, work experience and essays. Sure, these programs say they value those who have performed community service or have a vision for a life of doing good. But most people assume that those qualities are secondary to the grades and test scores that play such a prominent role in institutional rankings. Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business is trying a new approach. Last month, it announced that it would henceforth look for applicants who possess four qualities: smart, nice, accomplished and aware. Most of the attention on Tuck's list has centered on the quality of being nice -- not necessarily something associated with the cutthroat world of M.B.A. students or the business world. Luke Anthony Peña, executive director of admissions and financial aid at Tuck, said in a statement that the inclusion of nice was intentional, and related to the idea that an M.B.A. class of students should be able to work as a cohort and support one another. “What we’re looking for is emotional intelligence, empathy and respect for others,” he said. “Tuck is a distinctly collaborative community, so being able to challenge others tactfully and thoughtfully is important.” But how will niceness be determined? Being smart and being accomplished, he said, would be evaluated through traditional evaluations of grades, test scores and experiences. Niceness, he said, would come out in essays and in recommendations. The announcement prompted some wonderment on social media, with one person on Twitter saying that the obvious implication for those wanting to go to Tuck was "don't be a jerk." Tuck has followed up its original announcement with new essay prompts both for applicants and those writing letters of recommendation. In addition to fairly traditional questions about applicants' goals and how Tuck might help them, they will also be asked this question: "Tuck students are nice, and invest generously in one another’s success. Share an example of how you helped someone else succeed." Those submitting references will be asked, in additional to traditional questions, to respond to this prompt: "Tuck students are nice. Please comment on how the candidate interacts with others including when the interaction is difficult or challenging." Will the emphasis work? Will Tuck get genuinely nice people or those pretending to be nice? Chad Troutwine, co-founder and CEO of Veritas Prep, which provides high-end support to M.B.A. applicants, said he thought it would work -- primarily because Tuck has been talking about these qualities for some time, so its reputation is consistent with its new admissions approach. "Tuck has finally formalized what they’ve long valued: a community of leaders who prize empathy and emotional intelligence at least as highly as financial and strategic acumen," Troutwine said. "Those are not mutually exclusive qualities, so Tuck will likely attract even more of the high-quality applicants they seek. It’s a proud declaration of who they are." Noah Teitelbaum, executive director of pre-business programs at Manhattan Prep (part of Kaplan Test Prep), said via email that the shift at Tuck reflects an issue facing many business schools. "The image in the past has generally been that mean, less scrupulous people make it to the top," he said, and not everyone thinks that has been good for business or society. He also noted that potential M.B.A. students, perhaps more than some other applicants, think about the members of the cohort they may be joining. He said that "one factor that aspiring business school students consider when deciding where to apply to is whether that program is a good cultural fit for them and the nature of the network that they’ll gain as part of the program." He doesn't think applicants will fake being nice. "While diversity of opinion and background is really important for many students, it would make little sense to try to game the system to get into an M.B.A. program where you and your peers wouldn't at least share a core personality trait like kindness," he said. "That would result in a far from ideal experience. If a business school’s culture places a high premium on having ‘nice students,’ applicants who know their shortcomings in that area may not want to apply to that program anyway." Teitelbaum added that "being genuinely 'nice,' if you are not, is not easy to fake. You will always have some applicants who try to game the system, but admissions officers are generally experienced gatekeepers, who have a keen eye for applicants who embellish or fake their experiences or bona fides. It's likely they can spot artificial niceness, too."

  13. [DEADLINE: July 6, 2018] The Human Resources team enthusiastically invites people from all backgrounds and experiences to apply for opportunities at U.S. Embassy Belgrade. We take great pride in our fair and transparent recruiting process, including unbiased application evaluation, anonymous testing, and impartial interviewing. All qualified applicants are encouraged to consider a career at the U.S. Embassy. The Human Resources Office (HR) manages recruiting for the U.S. Embassy with exception of USAID (Agency for International Development). USAID recruitment can be found at https://www.usaid.gov/work-usaid. The Belgrade Human Resources Office can be reached at BelgradeHRO@state.gov. Opportunities are advertised on the embassy’s website, as well as announced in relevant newspapers, trade publications, and university bulletins. Each vacancy announcement describes the position, outlines the qualifications, notes the application deadline, and explains how to apply. Applicants must either be permanent residents permitted to work in Serbia, or Eligible Family Members of U.S. Direct Hires posted to Serbia. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) The U.S. Embassy provides equal opportunity and fair and equitable treatment in employment to all people without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, political affiliation, marital status, or sexual orientation. The Department of State also strives to achieve equal employment opportunity in all personnel operations through continuing diversity enhancement programs and does not favor an applicant more due to associations with State colleagues. Embassy Recruiting Process A new application is required for each vacancy announcement. After the vacancy announcement closes, HR reviews all applications and forwards those which are complete, eligible, and qualified to the employing office. The employing office ranks and short-lists candidates for pre-interview testing. HR may test language proficiency and position-required skill competency. All testing is completed and scored HR forwards applications with successful test results back to the employing office. The employing office ranks and selects candidates for interview. Interviews are conducted by the employing office, an impartial interviewer from a different office, and an HR official. It is highly preferable to conduct interviews in person at the embassy. On very rare occasions interviews may be conducted by video conference. The hiring manager, with feedback from all interview participants, ranks the top several applicants. Beginning with the top-ranked applicant, HR will contact applicants in rank-order until a conditional offer is accepted. Usually the recruiting process takes about two months from the vacancy close. During the recruiting process HR will contact short-listed candidates. If you do not hear from HR within two months of the vacancy announcement closing date, you may assume that your application has been unsuccessful.

  15. [Southeastern Louisiana university] volleyball team signed an incoming freshman and a transfer player to its 2018-2019 roster. Junior Tijana “Jo” Simovic from Garden City Community College and freshman Amanda Caluda from Northshore High School have joined the Lady Lions for next fall. According to Assistant Coach Alison Chevalier, both players are “definitely going to make an immediate impact this season.” A native of Serbia, Simovic played for two community colleges prior to her start at the university. Last season, she made 83 kills and 39 blocks within 34 matches. Chevalier described how Simovic’s talent will boost the energy for this season. “She’s extremely explosive in the front row and has lots of control,” said Chevalier. “She’s going to come into our program and bring some immediate experience and some fire that we’re really going to need coming into this 2018 season.” Chevalier also discussed Caluda’s attributes on the court. “She is a back-row player, super scrappy, and she’s the kind of kid that’s just going to be a really good defensive powerhouse for us in the back row,” said Chevalier. According to Chevalier, the recruitment process for transfer players and incoming freshmen differs. She explained how there’s “less uncertainty” with a transfer player due to more collegiate experience. “We had Jo on campus,” said Chevalier. “She kind of knew right away that this was the place she wanted to be. With incoming freshmen, it’s usually a little bit more of a longer process. They want to go and make sure they’re visiting a lot of different schools so that they don’t make the wrong decision.” Chevalier stated that although the team is looking for new recruits, the selection process is meticulous. “We want to get the kind of players that are going to come in, make a difference, improve the program and get us going in the right direction,” said Chevalier. “So, we are being a little bit picky, a little bit choosy, and we’re really getting to know the players’ characters and how they are athletically and physically.” Both Simovic and Caluda will undertake workout packets during the summer prior to joining the rest of the team in the preseason on Aug. 6. Following a 3-27 record last season, Chevalier explained the aspects of practice and pregame time that will change to improve the program. “We’re making some cultural changes in our program as a whole, just to have a little more of a mindset of a winning attitude and a little bit more discipline,” said Chevalier. “There’s some new traditions that we’re going to start up coming in this season to make sure that we don’t have a repeat of last year’s record and we’re going forward in the right direction.” http://www.lionsroarnews.com/news/view.php/1033970/Recruits-to-the-volleyball-program-bring
