  7. Funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by World Learning, the Digital Communications Network exchange program created and supports a collaborative network of communication professionals from across Europe and Central Asia, working together to strengthen communication skills through the development and dissemination of digital content. Over the last year, over 100 fellows from more than 20 countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia participated in our exchange program with the goal of exploring the ways that digital information technology has impacted our way of life from e-governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, social movements, and the media. The program alumni created the Digital Communication Network (DigiComNet), an international association to connect professionals in the digital age from a variety of backgrounds in order to generate ideas, tools, and products for media outlets, civil society organizations, businesses, and government. Now, over 4,000 members of the DigiComNet engage in cross-sector learning and the promotion of a free flow of quality information across borders. Since the first program in October 2015, DigiComNet organized a variety of events in Moldova, Estonia, Lithuania, Armenia, Poland, Ukraine, Serbia, Romania, Greece, and is working on an upcoming forum in Slovakia. A total of 14 participants will be selected through an open competition process to come to the United States for an 16-day long professional program, scheduled from April 8-24, 2019. Participants should work and reside in one of the following countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Ukraine. Selection will be based on the overall quality of the candidates, as well as their willingness and preparedness to make a contribution to the program.

Candidates for the program should be communication professionals, either with a journalistic or entrepreneurial background. They should work for media organizations (traditional or new), communication companies, NGOs and social movements, or e-governments focusing on delivering media methods and using new tools of digital communications. Priority will be given to candidates who demonstrate an interest and capacity to develop or transform organizations for the digital age, and/or to create new digital communication products. The U.S. based programs will include an orientation and overview of the issues, a case study looking at different facets of communication with a focus on digital content, professional fellowship placements, training workshops, learning labs, and participation in relevant industry events. Fellowship placements will be in media companies, non-profit organizations, NGOs, public policy organizations, communication companies, or university institutes across the United States. Placements will focus on topics such as the use of technology for advocacy and social causes, development of mobile applications to disseminate information and promote open responsive government, multi-media storytelling, creation of integrated multi-channel social messaging, communication strategies, ethical journalism, investigative reporting, and the nexus of digital and mainstream journalism. Professional development will be supplemented through an online platform, offering social media resources and MOOCs, as well as trainings on planning, executing, and assessing integrated and effective social media campaigns. To enhance program sustainability and effectiveness, participants will create and implement individual follow-on projects in their home countries. Action plans for these projects will be developed throughout the course of the U.S. programs. Accommodation in the United States will consist of double-person shared hotel rooms. A small stipend will be provided to participants while in the U.S. to cover basic living expenses.

  8. Always known for having bigs, Florida State landed another good one on Friday night as Balsa Koprivica picked the Seminoles. A native of Serbia, Koprivica has been in the United States for the entirety of his high school career, and after an up and down experience the past few years, the Seminoles stuck with him and ultimately landed his commitment. Along with Florida State, Baylor, Seton Hall, and several other schools were involved with Koprivica. Still Florida is the only home in the United States that he has known, and now Koprivica will stay there for college as well. About his decision to pick the Seminoles, Koprivica said, "I just felt comfortable with this decision. I just thought it was the best opportunity for me, and fir for all aspects." At roughly 7-feet tall with skill and mobility, Koprivica has all of the tools to be a very effective big man at the college level. He has good hands, can hit shots out to 15 feet, and also has the ability to rebound both in and out of his area. Koprivica has struggled at times with consistency, but Leonard Hamilton and his staff are convinced they are going to be able to get the best out him, and get him to his potential ceiling, which is significant. Now at Montverde Academy, Koprivica is finally healthy and looking forward to having a big senior season. He previously was at University School in Fort Lauderdale. This is the fourth commitment for the Seminoles in the class of 2019. Along with Koprivica, Florida State has another four-star prospect committed in wing Patrick Williams. Also junior college guard Nathanael Jack and three-star wing Zimife Nwokeji are committed to Florida State. https://247sports.com/college/basketball/recruiting/Article/Talented-four-star-center-Balsa-Koprivica-is-headed-to-Florida-State-123834645/
  9. We invite applicants from the fields of history, the arts, philosophy and sociology to reflect on the conditions of knowledge production during and after the Cold War. This reflection exposes the intellectual and professional practices (journalistic, sociological, artistic, political, archival) that both reflected and shaped the meaning and scope of the Cold War phenomenon. The applications could be inspired by (but not limited to) the suggested topics below : Toolkits and media practices to ensure objectivity Conceptualizing and classifying opposition (selection and support for what counts as a "movement", "dissidence" or "non-conformism") Techno-sciences of mass communication Cold War wikipedia: documenting personalities and biographies (biographical card files, personal archives) Circuits of communication and (anti-)propaganda techniques: information gathering and classification, textual and visual dissemination (book programs, samizdat, TV monitoring, instructional and documentary movies) Problems of documentation and verification of human rights abuses Construction of political ‘facts’ amidst socio - economic issues (standards of living, urbanization, education, religion etc); Historical analysis of socialist welfare policy and poverty under communism Documenting transnational phenomena in a time of polarized visions and imbalances between centers and peripheries Consequences of Cold War conceptual schemes and treatment of information on current economic and socio-political issues Related to the centennial of the Bolshevik revolution OSA encourages both scholars and artists to reflect on the (Cold War) receptions, instrumentalizations and revisions of the history and the notion of the Revolution. The Open Society Archives’ holdings are informative not just about different phenomena during and after the Cold War, but also about the forms through which these phenomena were reflected, archived, classified, reported and commented. By hosting collections related to the Radio Free Europe research section, the Soviet press, sociological institutes, former dissidents or book distribution programs, our documentary portfolio functions as both a repository of ready-made topics and as a cluster of media practices in analyzing, gathering and selecting information. OSA Research Program The current call is part of a reflexive-research program at OSA interested in the working knowledge and skills that characterized the investigations of Cold War experts and diverse monitoring agencies before 1989. As an institution dedicated to linking teaching, researching and archiving, OSA is engaged in a research program dedicated to conditions of knowledge production during and after the Cold War. This “practice focus” is parallel with the “practice turn” in the history of science with an interest in the history of Cold War ideology and social thought. Admission The goal of the selection process is to bring together scholars and artists who have exciting and interesting projects. We seek to promote exchanges among people with backgrounds in the arts, humanities and social sciences in the way they think through and about archives. From this point of view, the invitation is not only addressed to scholars working specifically on Cold War topics, but to all those interested in theories of knowledge and practice-oriented epistemology who would use OSA documents as props for larger reflections and activist concerns. Fellowship requirements and OSA support While working on their own subject, fellows will have the opportunity to collaborate with OSA researchers and to transform their archival investigation into a full research experience. The fellows are invited to give a final presentation about their research findings at OSA and the ways in which the documents were relevant to their research. The presentations are organized within the Visegrad Scholarship at OSA lecture series and as such former Visegrad alumni and external guests can also attend. OSA academic and archival staff will assist the fellows in their investigations, facilitate contact with the CEU community, and grant access to the CEU library. Besides its archival analogue collections, OSA can also offer access to unique, audio-visual materials related to documentary practices, a special collection of RFE (anti)propaganda books and a growing collection on digital humanities, human rights, archival theory and philosophy. Submission deadlines for the 2018/19 academic year: July 25, 2018 November 15, 2018 Assessment The Selection Committee will evaluate proposals on the strength of the professional quality and novelty of the research proposal, its relevance to the chosen topic and the involvement of the OSA holdings in the research. In the case of equal scores those from V4 countries have advantage. Application procedure Please submit the following to OSA: Application letter in English (should specify expected period of stay and preferred dates). Please note that the Archive’s Research Room is closed during the Christmas period, and the research stay must end on the last day of the given academic year, July 31. Research description/plan in English (about 800 words and should include the following: introduction, presentation of the stage of research, literature on the subject, preliminary hypothesis, questions, identification of possible documents in the OSA holdings). Artists are expected to submit a portfolio, too. Curriculum Vitae (C.V.) Proof of officially recognized advanced level English language exam (native speakers and those with qualification from an English language institution/degree program are exempted) Names of two referees with contact address. Letters of reference are not needed. The Application letter, C.V., the Research description/plan, the copy of a language exam certification and the Referees’ contact information should be sent by email to Katalin Gadoros at gadoros@ceu.edu. www.osaarchivum.org/work-with-us/fellowship/visegrad-scholarship

    Where do I start on my PhD?

    Ferdie, In all the excitement around the Scholarship Fair there was some break in communication, so you missed the critical piece of instruction. All the guests of ours at the Fair were given a chance to register for a special time slot of graduate advising on October 28 - all they needed to do was to send an e-mail with "bgd stipendija" in the title to receive registration form. It's still not too late for you to get that link and register for the event. In your case, searching for multidisciplinary study would take a lot of explaining in writing, and we would advise to come to our session with adviser. This time of the year is the hardest for us with all the prospective students gathering all the resources and preparing to apply, and it would be easier to take your questions live.

Tips for Proposal Preparation 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. 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. 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. Be concise. Reviewers must read dozens of proposals. Proposals that are clear and concise are more compelling.

  18. Growing up in Germany, Daniel Posmik says he always had a fascination with American culture and way of life. So he was excited when he was offered a full-ride academic scholarship to attend Lakota East High School in Ohio for 11th grade. "Attending an American high school helped me in communicating and understanding foreign cultures more effectively," says Posmik, who earned the scholarship through the international student exchange organization ICES and its German partner organization Stepin. Now a freshman at the University of Cincinnati majoring in international business management, Posmik says the experience allowed him to develop an open mind. He's not alone. The number of international students who went to the U.S. for high school more than tripled between 2004 and 2016 to nearly 82,000, according to the Institute of International Education. Prospective international students may want to consider attending their last year or two at an American high school to help them prepare for attending a U.S. university. Keep in mind that international students must pay the full cost of education. Also, those planning to study at U.S. high schools for more than a year require an F-1 student visa, experts say, while those participating in a one-year exchange program through the U.S. Department of State require a J-1 visa. Here are two ways attending high school in the U.S. can prepare prospective international college applicants. English language practice. International high school students can not only get English language practice by speaking with their American classmates, but many high schools also offer English as a Second Language programs to assist nonnative English speakers. Students may also have access to English language tutors who can work one-on-one with them. "Spending a year or two in a U.S. high school, often offering ESL programs, can greatly hone an international student's English skills, which is demanded by college studies in the U.S.," says Sharon Tan, academic director at Educatius Group, which helps international students enroll in international high school programs. For students with stronger English-speaking skills, two years in a U.S. high school can be helpful, says Stephen Lanier, director of international undergraduate admissions at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma. But for a student whose English ability is low, he says the best option is three or more years, which "allows the student to improve their grades and earn a better cumulative GPA." Korean national Juyoung Seo attended 10th and 11th grade at Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School in Michigan and 12th grade at Orono High School in Maine. Seo says taking an ESL class at her first high school really helped her with papers she had to write for English class. She learned how to check grammar, brainstorm paper topics, cite references and use MLA and APA academic styles – useful skills for studying at U.S. universities. Jon Weller, director of international enrollment at the University of Cincinnati, says a U.S. high school experience can allow students to improve English communication skills as well as "feel more comfortable in American social situations." Posmik says while he didn't take ESL or have a tutor at his high school, being around his American peers allowed him to sharpen his English and communication skills." My English improved to the point that I even lost my accent," Posmik says. Adjustment to the American education system, including extracurriculars. Attending an American high school can expose students to a different education system and offer them opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities and take courses at a local college. By attending a U.S. high school, Weller says, international students will become more familiar with the U.S. grading system. Tan says the experience ensures a smoother transition into U.S. higher education, as high school is intended to prepare students for studies at American universities. "We have observed that students who have spent a year or two in a U.S. high school adapt more quickly to college-level academics, create a more diverse set of friendships, seek additional academic support and join extracurricular activities," says Orlina Boteva, director of the Office of International Programs at the University of Maine. Posmik says his experience with the American education system helped him enormously. He says not only did he know what to expect on standardized tests like the ACT or the TOEFL, but it also helped him write more eloquent college scholarship and application essays. Lanier says students who attend U.S. high schools have opportunities to participate in cocurricular activities connected to academics and extracurricular activities, which may not be available at their schools overseas. "U.S. universities are looking for students who can contribute to both a school's academic and social communities," Lanier says. Seo says in Korea it can be difficult to participate in extracurricular activities due to the emphasis placed on studying in Korean culture. During her senior year in Maine, Seo took advantage of her options by joining the soccer and basketball teams. She also took a calculus II course at the University of Maine campus – the university she now attends, where she is majoring in accounting. At his high school, Posmik says he played varsity sports and made a lot of athletic progress. He says he was nominated as an all-state linebacker in 2016 and received an athletic scholarship to a university in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics in 2017, though he ended up transferring to the University of Cincinnati. He says for students considering attending a U.S. high school, it's important to have an open mind and be active in the school's extracurricular programs. "Both of these points will be important for your personal and academic success," Posmik says. https://www.usnews.com/education/best-colleges/articles/2018-09-18/how-ushighschoolcan-prepare-international-students-for-college

  22. Priprema za SAT, ispit potreban za upis koledža i univerziteta u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u utorak, 2. oktobra 2018. godine i traje osam nedelja. 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. Predavanja se radnim danima 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 simulacije 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.

    SAT priprema od 2. oktobra 2018.

    Priprema za SAT, ispit potreban za upis koledža i univerziteta u Americi i na drugim lokacijama u svetu, počinje u utorak, 2. oktobra 2018. godine i traje osam nedelja. 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. Predavanja se radnim danima 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 simulacije 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. Pre početka priprema potrebno je uraditi besplatni probni test znanja engleskog jezika.

  24. The Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering was recently created as a joint endeavor between the School of Engineering and the Faculty of Mathematics of the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile in Santiago. The Institute aims to become an international referent on addressing complex problems in science, technology, and society, pushing forward interdisciplinary research, connecting advanced mathematical modeling with various disciplines. Current faculty members of the Institute conduct research in a wide variety of areas such as data science, optimization (continuous and discrete), inverse problems, uncertainty quantification, theory of computing, numerical analysis, and high-performance computing. This recent interdisciplinary effort has already generated important collaborations with several leading international centers. Application areas include industrial problems and management sciences, social sciences, astronomical instrumentation, optics and nanophotonics, biological and medical engineering, among others. The Institute is also responsible for the Mathematical Engineering program---a highly selective undergraduate program within the School of Engineering---and is in the process of creating interdisciplinary graduate programs in Mathematical and Computational Engineering leading to master and doctoral degrees. As part of its strategic plans, the Institute is offering two open-rank positions at the assistant or associate level. We invite highly qualified candidates in all areas of applied mathematics addressed by the Institute to apply to these positions, although preference might be given to applicants interested in the mathematical, computational and statistical interplay between machine learning, data science, uncertainty quantification and stochastic modeling, and also the potentials of high- performance computing in those areas, as well as in connection with online algorithms, optimization and numerical problems. Applicants should have completed or be close to complete a Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research, Computer Science or related areas. An Engineering background is highly desirable. The selected candidates will be expected to conduct interdisciplinary research and be able to connect with other disciplines in the University. The ability to address relevant applied problems in industry and public sector, among others, is also very valuable. Selected candidates will also be expected to teach and contribute to the Mathematical and Computational Engineering curriculum. Typical teaching load is three semester long courses a year, which could be graduate or undergraduate level. Command of Spanish is not required to apply but the selected candidates are expected to learn the language. The deadline for applying is October 1, 2018 and more details and application instructions are available at the following link: https://imc.uc.cl/index.php/noticias/77-open-positions-at-the-institute-for-mathematical-and-computational-engineering-pontificia-universidad-catolica-de-chile
  25. Programi kulturne razmene sa sada bivšim komunističkim državama su počeli 1980-ih godina, a razmene između Amerike i komunističkih zemalja, fokusirane na studente fakulteta, počele su još 1950-ih godina. FLEX program je prvi veliki, dugoročni program koji se fokusira na učenike srednjih škola. Ovaj program je napravljen od strane Kongresa Sjedinjenih Američkih Država da pruži ruku prijateljstva ljudi iz SAD ljudima nekadašnjih komunističkih režima. Time je uspostavljen prvi dugoročni program razmene za učenike srednje škole da putuju u Ameriku na godinu dana. FLEX je sada u 25. godini sprovođenja, a na njemu je do sada učestvovalo preko 27, 000 učenika. 2018-19 školske godine na FLEX programu učestvuje 922 učenika koji idu u američke škole i žive sa američkim porodicama. Učenici sa hendikepom mogu učestvovati na programu po istim kriterijima. Svake godine u SAD na program ode oko 20 učenika sa hendikepom.

Predstavnici Američkog saveta za međunarodno obrazovanje svake jeseni posećuju određene gradove kako bi sproveli testiranje. Kandidati moraju doneti u centar za testiranje dokaz o godini rođenja i jednu noviju fotografiju dimenzija 3×4 cm u vreme početne registracije. Mesta centara za testiranje se objavljuju putem društvenih mreža i medija, a informacije se mogu dobiti i putem internet stranice discoverflex.org. Kandidati mogu biti testirani u samo JEDNOM centru za testiranje. Svi kandidati prolaze kroz kratak test engleskog jezika (1. krug). Oni koji prođu prvi test rade esej na na engleskom jeziku na svakodnevne, životne teme. Ovaj je esej deo 2. kruga. Kandidati moraju uspešno završiti prva dva kruga testiranja pre nego što prime završne materijale za prijavu i pre nego što budu intervjuisani. Intervju i još jedan esej čine 3. krug. U okviru 3. kruga učenici rade još jedan test engleskog jezika. Registracija sa zaposlenima iz Američkog saveta u svim lokacijama za testiranje počinje u 8:30 ujutro i traje do 11 ujutro na sam dan testiranja. Ne postoji nikakvo prijavljivanje unapred. Ponesite crnu hemijsku olovku, fotografiju veličine 3×4 cm i identifikacioni dokument (pasoš ili đačku knjižicu ili izvod iz matične knjige rođenih).

Nezavisno veće američkih stručnjaka iz polja obrazovanja i međunarodnih odnosa u SAD biraju finaliste i rezervne kandidate. Izbor se zasniva na osnovu postignuća učenika što se može videti iz detaljne prijave, preporuka nastavnika i demonstrirane pripremljenosti za godinu dana dugo iskustvo razmene. Od učenika se traži da pribave zdravstveno uverenje, te da imaju potvrdu da su zdravstveno spremni da učestvuju u programu. Proces izbora se završava u proleće i svi kandidati se obaveštavaju o svom statusu na programu do maja. Poznavanje engleskog jezika je važno, ali nije jedini kriterijum izbora. Šta se dešava nakon obaveštenja? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Nakon obaveštenja, finalisti, rezervni kandidati i njihovi roditelji primaju informativne materijale kako bi se pripremili za odlazak. Oni moraju službeno obavestiti Američki savet za međunarodno obrazovanje da prihvataju stipendiju i predati svu potrebnu dokumentaciju. Učenici tada počinju, prema instrukcijama FLEX-a proces prijave za međunarodni pasoš i američku vizu. Od maja do avgusta, Američki savet za međunarodno obrazovanje i njegove partnerske organizacije pronalaze finalistima kvalifikovane američke porodice domaćine i pripremaju upis stipendista u lokalne srednje škole. U junu i julu, učenici koji prime stipendije učestvovaće u pred-programskoj orijentaciji u svojim zemljama. Učenici potom putuju svojim američkim porodicama domaćinima i zajednicama kako bi u avgustu počelo njihovo iskustvo razmene. Učenici se moraju vratiti u svoje domovine na kraju programa na dan određen od Američkog saveta za međunarodno obrazovanje. Američka viza izdata učesnicima programa neće biti izmenjena ili produžena posle datuma kraja programa bez obzira na razlog. Kako će mi koristiti iskustvo razmene? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Future Leaders Exchange program nudi učenicima priliku da nauče više o ljudima i kulturi Sjedinjenih Država te šansu da poduče druge o ljudima i kulturi svoje zemlje. Učenici razvijaju poštovanje i senzibilnost prema drugim kulturama, unapređuju lični razvoj i stiču nezavisnost te postaju bolje pripremljeni za sve više međuzavisni svet. Učenici formiraju snažne veze sa svojim američkim porodicama domaćinima i zajednicama gradeći kontakte koji često traju čitav život. Mnogi alumni programa idu na prestižne studije nakon programa te kasnije pronalaze uzbudljive poslove u kojima koriste veštine koje su stekli tokom svog boravka u SAD. Šta da uzmem u obzir pre prijave za FLEX? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Učenici koji su zainteresovani za ovaj program bi trebalo da razmisle o mogućim posledicama ovog programa: • Možda se nećete vratiti kući na vreme da polažete završne školske ispite (ako to vaša škola od vas traži) • Možda ćete morati da ponavljate školsku godinu ili polažete razliku predmeta • Iako učenici učestvuju u akademskom programu u SAD školski planovi i programi su dosta drugačiji nego u vašoj zemlji, i možda nećete učiti iste predmete. Ko organizuje program? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Američki savet za međunarodno obrazovanje organizuje testiranje, odabir, pripremu i putovanje za stipendiste FLEX programa. Osnovan 1974. godine Američki savet je međunarodna, neprofitna organizacija koja radi na unapređivanju razumevanja između različitih država razmenom pojedinaca i jačanjem saradnje kroz obrazovanje. Američki savet dizajnira, sprovodi i podržava inovativne programe u SAD, Evropi, Bliskom istoku, Aziji i Africi. U proteklih preko 40 godina Američki savet postao je jedna od glavnih američkih organizacija koja se bavi međunarodnim obrazovanjem i obukama u ovoj oblasti. Američki savet administrira više od 30 programa razmene, kao i nekoliko programa za učenike srednjih škola, studente univerziteta, profesore, nastavnike. Američki savet profesionalno administrira tj. sprovodi programe akademske, profesionalne i kulturne razmene za državljane Avganistana, Afrike, Evroazije, Bliskog istoka, južne Azije i jugoistočne Evrope. Mnoge druge privatne, neprofitne organizacije iz SAD imaju ulogu u podršci programu FLEX. Vlada SAD od ovih organizacija traži da smeštaju učesnike FLEX programa u američke porodice i da im pružaju potrebnu podršku tokom programa.
