The Institute of Economic Sciences, Belgrade, is organizing the 16th annual Summer School of Economics on July 15th – July 19th 2013. It was started in 1998, triggered by the need to provide education about emerging market economy and contemporary economic trends that were excluded from the formal system of education at the time. Since the Summer School gathers students from the entire region of the Western Balkans, it not only offers students the opportunity to learn from distinguished lecturers, both from Serbia and abroad, but also the chance to meet their peers from the region, and establish friendships and networks that will be important in their future careers.

The cost of higher education can be daunting when looking at tuition, room and board, books and transportation. Scholarships provide an excellent source of financial relief to the burden of college expenses for students that have proven they are responsible enough to maintain a high GPA, show fortuitous athletic prowess, or make a worthy impression to financiers through essays and submissions to scholarship applications. However, even with scholarships, unforeseen expenses can put a damper on a student’s college experience.
Your scholarship budget should account for many variables. Students should take the time to plan a budget that not only includes the essentials, but also accounts for unforeseen expenses like road trips, supplementary texts, tools, and equipment (think laptops, iPads, or graphing calculators).
