  2. The University of Hawaii men’s basketball team went to great lengths — 7,965 miles — to secure a commitment from a 6-foot-8, 215-pound wing from Nis, Serbia. “I’m excited about coming,” said Matija Svetozarevic, who signed a scholarship agreement and will join the Rainbow Warriors this month. “I know Hawaii has its own culture. I know it’s famous for its beaches and nature.” Svetozarevic is transferring from Portland, where he played in 28 games, starting one, as a freshman the past season. He averaged 9.7 minutes, but connected on a 93.8% of his free throws (15-for-16). With the Pilots bringing in several older transfers, Svetozarevic was expected to have a reserve role this coming season. “I started looking at other options,” Svetozarevic said of entering the NCAA’s transfer portal. “I got in touch with (UH associate head coach) John Montgomery. We started talking more and more. Then they offered me, and I accepted the offer.” Svetozarevic could fill the role vacated by wing/post Jerome Desrosiers’ completion of his NCAA eligibility. Svetozarevic also can play — and defend — the three and four, as well as provide long-range shooting. Svetozarevic was involved with the Serbian Youth National Team, helping the U-16 team place fifth in the 2018 FIBA European Championships. He also has trained as an amateur with KK Dynamic, a club team. At the urging of friends and teammates, Svetozarevic decided he could advance his basketball skills better in the United States. Through several contacts, he received offers from colleges. “Portland was the best option at the time,” he said. The ’Bows fill their 13 scholarships with Svetozarevic’s signing. https://www.staradvertiser.com/2022/08/09/sports/sports-breaking/uh-mens-basketball-team-lands-6-8-wing-from-serbia/

  4. Workshop Details The program will cover travel, accommodation, and per diem expenses for the two-week residential institute. Institute members will be expected to be in residence and to participate in all planned events for the duration of the institute. Scholars will also be provided with opportunities to travel locally during this time. Scholars should apply with their own research proposals through the ACLS online system. This program is made possible thanks to a generous donation by Carl and Betty Pforzheimer. Summary The Summer Institute for the Study of East Central and Southeastern Europe (SISECSE) is a two-week residential fellowship, that provides scholars of Eastern Europe the opportunity to undertake local fieldwork in Bulgaria. ACLS in partnership with the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia (CAS) will convene leading scholars from Eastern Europe and North America for a two-week residency in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria from June 1, 2023 to June 15, 2023. SISECSE will provide participating scholars with two weeks to dedicate to their own research and writing in a collaborative and interdisciplinary setting. Participants will be able to undertake local fieldwork, including archival research, work in museum collections, interviews, site surveys, or other forms of data collection. Immersive Discussions In addition to conducting their own research, scholars will also have the opportunity to participate in small group writing workshops, as well as a series of immersive discussions on a broad topic of shared academic interest. In 2023, discussions will explore “Scholarly Writing in the Digital Age.” Participants will be asked to consider broad questions of accessibility and audience; the democratization of scholarly writing, manifested in the expansion of acceptable writing styles in journals and books; the blur between scholarly writing and creative writing, essays, and memoirs; the implications of digital sources for the way scholars treat their work; the potential of graphics and digital publication; the perceived over-production of articles and books; changing institutional frameworks and cultures of academic writing, and the growing demands for wider impact while retaining intellectual substance; and more. Discussions will be held over several meals and in one seminar session. Please note: It is not required or expected that applicant’s research projects are connected to the workshop theme. Thematic discussions are intended for the enrichment of the participants. Eligibility Applicants must have a PhD degree conferred by an accredited university by December 1, 2022.

  20. More than 600 million young people live in fragile and conflict-affected states, and in many fragile countries, more than 60% of the population is under the age of 25, making youth the largest group that experiences the impact of fragility and conflict. Young people represent the largest youth demographic the world has ever seen and hold enormous potential to create peace in their communities. Evidence has shown that sustainable peacebuilding comes from the bottom-up. While youth are often characterised as passive recipients of peacebuilding, they must be recognised as active peacebuilders who are able to focus their efforts on safeguarding, stimulating, facilitating, and creating the space for societies to develop resilient capacities for self-organisation. The One Young World Peace Ambassador Scholarship, delivered in partnership with the European Commission, aims to empower young people to build more cohesive and peaceful societies. Scholarship recipients will participate in the One Young World Summit 2022, which will see 2,000 young leaders from 190+ countries descend on Manchester for the global forum for young leaders. During the Summit, delegates will present and debate solutions to our time’s most pressing issues alongside senior leaders. Scholarship recipients will join a community of over 200 Peace Ambassadors who have participated in the programme since 2017. The 2022 Peace Ambassador Programme will have a focus on the role of disinformation in fuelling hate speech, conflict and violent extremism. Peace Ambassador Programme Benefits: Participants' voices will be amplified enabling them to shape the policies that affect them most. Increased visibility of young leaders contributing to Peace and P/CVE in their communities. Participants will foster dialogue around the key theme of peacebuilding. Recipients will learn more about the European Union and its institutions and their role in promoting peace and fostering respect for fundamental rights and freedoms. Peace Ambassadors will receive*: Access to the One Young World Summit which takes place 5 - 8 September 2022 in Manchester, United Kingdom. Roundtrip travel to Manchester and back to the country of origin. Hotel accommodation for the duration of the Summit.

  25. SALT LAKE CITY- Utah basketball coach Craig Smith offically added talented international player, Luka Tarlac to the Runnin’ Utes roster Tuesday evening. Tarlac was born in Serbia in Belgrade. He has been playing for Dunav (a team in Serbia) on loan before committing to the Utes. At six-foot, eight-inches, the international small forward will once again bring some size to the Runnin’ Utes. This past season with Dunav, Tarlac averaged 8.1 points per game, and 2.8 rebounds in 19 total games played. Before Tarlac played for Dunav in 2021-’22, he spent two seasons with Partizan NIS U19. In 2018-’19 Tarlac averaged one-point per game, 3.5 rebounds and .5 assists in just two games played. Tarlac participated in five games for Partizan NIS U19 in the 2019-’20 season where he averaged 12.8 points per game, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists. Playing in a new country can be intimidating, but Tarlac will have a familiar face with him on Utah’s roster. Guard Lazar Stefanovich joined the Utes last season in year one of Smith’s rebuild of the program. He is set to return this season and played with Tarlac in Serbia. Just like Tarlac, Stefanovich was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia. Tarlac becomes the fourth new addition in Smith’s second year with the Utes. Mike Saunders Jr. joined the team via transfer portal from Cincinnati. Wilguens Exacte Jr. is another international student from Canada who spent time playing in South America. Finally, Keba Kita comes to the Utes from the Wasatch Academy just down the road in Mount. Pleasant, Utah. Smith also brought on assistant coach Chris Burgess from BYU. Burgess played for the Utes from 2000-2002 after starting his collegiate career with Duke. Burgess spent some time in the NBA before playing internationally. In 2015 Burgess started his coaching career at Utah Valley before heading to BYU. https://kslsports.com/485197/runnin-utes-officially-sign-international-player-luka-tarlac/

Practical experience in the U.S. gained through this program, plus greater familiarity with American society and culture, will provide Humphrey Fellows with the basis for lasting, productive ties with their American counterparts in the years to come. PROFESSIONAL FIELDS The Humphrey Fellowship is granted competitively to public and private sector candidates from Serbia with strong leadership potential and a commitment to service who are focused on the following fields: Economic Development. Public Policy Analysis and Public Administration. Technology Policy and Management. Law and Human Rights. Trafficking in Persons Policy & Prevention. Agricultural and Rural Development. Natural Resources, Environmental Policy, and Climate Change. Urban and Regional Planning Public Health Policy and Management Higher Education Administration THE HUMPHREY PROGRAM EXPERIENCE The yearlong Fellowship offers valuable opportunities for non-degree graduate level university study, leadership development, networking, and substantive professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts through practical work experience. The freedom from the requirements necessary to obtain a degree gives each Fellow greater flexibility to pursue a self-directed, individualized program. Though Humphrey Fellows are hosted at American universities, we would like to stress that this is a professional, non-academic exchange program. Certain universities will host Fellows in the same field of interest, so candidates are unable to request placement at particular academic institutions. Humphrey Fellows may not transfer from non-degree to degree status at their host university under any circumstances. Beyond the graduate level courses, professional enrichment activities include participation in conferences, training programs, site visits, and a “professional affiliation,” i.e., practical job experience on a full-time basis in an American work environment for a minimum of six weeks. Early in the academic year, with assistance from the Humphrey coordinator and faculty advisors at the university, each Fellow will develop a detailed plan of practical professional activities geared toward his/her Humphrey Program objectives. During the year, Fellows both pursue their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. The Program also encourages Fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and to network with their American peers. BASIC REQUIREMENTS: Appropriate candidates are young, mid-career professionals in leadership positions in either the public and private sector who have demonstrated a commitment to public service and the potential for further advancement. We strongly encourage both men and women to apply, as well as persons with disabilities and individuals from other underserved groups. The technical eligibility requirements are: Serbian citizenship and eligibility to obtain a U.S. visa. An undergraduate university degree. A minimum of five years of full-time, professional experience in the relevant field by June 2023. Limited or no prior experience in the United States. Demonstrated leadership qualities. A record of public service in the community. Proficiency* in written and spoken English. Candidates will normally have a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 525 (paper-based) or 71 (internet-based). If you have taken a TOEFL exams in the past, scores are valid for two years. The TOEFL exam is not a requirement at the time of application. Candidates who pass the interview will receive the instructions how to register for the TOEFL exam. * Note: In addition to the pre-academic language training traditionally available to all selected candidates, the Humphrey Program offers Long-Term English (LTE) language training opportunities to facilitate participation of individuals who might lack sufficiently advanced English language skills at the time of application. Candidates for LTE typically have TOEFL scores in the 440-500 range (paper-based test) or 42-61 (internet-based test). LTE participants will travel to the U.S early for intensive language training lasting 20-25 weeks to improve their English skills before transitioning to their host university campuses at the start of the 2020-21 academic year. Please be aware that the following individuals are ineligible to apply for the Humphrey Program: Recent university graduates (even if they now hold significant positions in their organizations); University teachers or academic researchers with no management responsibilities; Individuals who have attended a graduate school in the United States for one academic year or more during the seven years prior to August 2023; Individuals with U.S. in-country experience of any kind lasting more than six months during the five years prior to August 2023; Individuals with dual U.S. citizenship or U.S. permanent resident status may not apply to the program; they are ineligible for a J visa; Local employees of U.S. Missions abroad who work for the U.S. Department of State and members of their families as well as individuals who work for or are otherwise associated with an organization that is responsible for nominating or selecting individuals for participation in any Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) exchange program are ineligible for grants during the period of their employment and for one year following the termination of employment. Priority will be given to candidates with no recent experiences in a third country, especially in a developed country. APPLICATION AND SELECTION PROCESS Beyond demonstrating the required experience, skills, and a commitment to public service, candidates will also need to explain through the application process how they might benefit from the unique opportunities offered in the Humphrey Program. The key questions to answer are: Why exactly do you need this experience at this point in your career? How exactly will you and how will Serbia benefit from your participation in this program? Applications are due June 30, 2022. Information on how to apply is below. Within 30 days, we will contact short-listed applicants to attend an interview at the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade in the first half of September, 2022. Candidates who pass the interview will be registered for the TOEFL exam. We will then forward the application packets with TOEFL results to Washington. The final selection of candidates will be announced in Washington, DC in February 2023. Finalists will then need to apply for a visa. The Embassy will assist the candidate with that process and other paperwork requirements, including the medical exam. DEPENDENTS (FAMILY MEMBERS) The Humphrey Fellowship covers air travel, a stipend, and other costs, but all expenses are budgeted only for the Fellow himself/herself. The award does not include additional allowances or funds of any sort for dependents, i.e., family members. Candidates who are planning to have dependents join them during all or part of the fellowship year in the U.S. should bear in mind the high cost of living. They must furthermore receive prior approval from the Humphrey Program that they have adequate personal funds to cover living expenses and dependents’ health insurance and (if applicable) child care. Dependents absolutely may not come during the ELT period when the Fellow is engaged in intensive study of English in preparation for the Fellowship year.
