Europe          0900-1200       1224

Listeners in Europe are advised to turn into 11720 KHz in the 25 m band or 
9700 KHz in the 31 m band. They are regulary in use and have usually a good
reception. Also broadcasts targeting N.A can be heard at above frequencies.

An other interesting frequency is 7670 KHz (not officially in the schedule). 
It relays Horizont. The transmitter is in Stolnik with 15 kW intended for
the home service.

If you are in Europe and have a car radio with you, you could also try
reaching the following stations at medium waves: 828 KHz (Christo Botev),
1161 KHz (Horizont) with 500 kW transmitter in Stara Zagora and 1224 KHz
(foreign service) with 500 kW from Vidin.

Radio Varna has also started its own broadcastings abroad. A possible
frequency is 7230 KHz on fridays only but is likely to be too weak for
reception.

     The Bulgarian Studies Association of North America was
founded in 1971 by a group of American and Canadian scholars
concerned with Bulgarian subjects.  Its purpose is to encourage
academic investigation of Bulgaria, exchange information, and
develop relations with Bulgarian scholars.  The BSA organized the
first joint meeting of North American and Bulgarian scholars at
Madison, Wisconsin in 1973.  This was followed by meetings in
Varna, Boston, Smolyan and, most recently, Pittsburgh (May,
1994.)  The Association also holds an annual meeting in
conjunction with the convention of the American Association
for the Advancement of Slavic Studies (AAASS).

     The BSA publishes a newsletter, appearing about four times
each year, with information on the activities of the organization 
and its individual members.  Membership is open to anyone with an
interest in Bulgarian studies.  Dues are $15.00 per year.  
Requests for membership should be sent to its secretary: Martha

The Bulgarian-American Fulbright Commission for Educational Exchange was

between the United States of America and the Republic of Bulgaria in 
November 1992. Although the youngest in Europe, the Commission will base
its policy regarding planning, selection, and administration of the Ful-
bright program on the experience of educational exchange between the U.S.
and Bulgaria accumulated during the last 25 years and the needs of the 
dynamic present. The principles we have adopted are fully in tune with the
spirit of the Fulbright initiative.

9-3 European Bank for Reconstruction and Development 
(by Holger Zscheyge), last updated: 31-Jul-1994
Try to contact the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
They are probably the best address for jobs with a focus on
FSU/Eastern Europe. Even if they cannot offer you a job they know
thousands of companies in the respective countries.
The EBRD can be reached by mail:

European Bank for Reconstruction and Development
One Exchange Square
London EC2A 2EH
England

Tel.: +4471-3386435
Fax: +44713386486

As far as I know the US have an liason officer there. Hope this helps.

9-4 Finding Sources 
(by Jim Cashel), last updated: 31-Jul-1994
SOURCES FOR FUNDING COMPILED BY WORLD LEARNING INC.

 Drago's note: these sources are primarily intended for the NIS (Newly
Independent States - xUSSR). I have kept these addresses which I thought
might be relevant to Bulgaria as well.

The PVO/NIS Project realizes there are a lot of worthy projects still unfunded.
Therefore, we would like to present a partial list of alternative funding
sources. It is important to keep in mind that such data is meant to serve as a
point of departure for your own research and is evolving and always subject to
change.

The sources of funding for activities in the NIS are many and varied.  Unless
you know where to look and precisely what you are looking for it can be
confusing.  In fact, in an ever-changing NIS environment, it is hard to know
where funding is with any precision.  There are many PVOs looking to tap into
funds in the sectors of health, the private sector, democratic reform, exchanges
and training, and women's health. INTERACTION, an association of U.S. PVOs, is
seeking to coordinate and concentrate funding priorities for the NGO community
in these sectors.  The following provides an overview of some of these groups,
their activities, and where available the $ amount of grants they may be
distributing.
