At the end of this first part of the visibility event dedicated to new YCS grantees, the YCS Team Leader, Mr. Ezio Benedetti, the Rector of the University of Prishtina ‘Hasan Prishtina’, prof. dr. Marjan Dema, and the President of the EYCA Kosovo Board, Ms. Alba Boshnjaku, held a brief ceremony for the donation to the University of Prishtina of 42 academic books translated from English into Albanian in 2015-2016 by YCS alumni in the frame of EYCA activities supported by the project.
The event was aimed at informing the media and larger public about this year’s selection results and to further spread the remarkable achievements of the YCS program in Kosovo so far. The newly awarded grantees, who will continue their studies in different fields of law, public administration, economics and for the first time this year culture and health sector, will upon the completion of their Master programs join the family of some 350 Young Cell Scheme alumni from the previous eleven rounds.
