Dušan Kešelj was born on 24th October, 1980 in Novi Sad. He was an excellent student of the Primary school “Miroslav Antić” and further on an excellent student of the Mathematics stream of the Gymnasium “Jovan Jovanović Zmaj”.

His extraordinary intelligence was confirmed by MENSA tests as well as on competitions. During his primary and high school education he was very successful and won awards at different competitions in Mathematics, Physics and Information technology science. He successfully completed the studies of Information technology at the Faculty of Sciences in Novi Sad, and at the time of his tragic death he was a postgraduate student at this Faculty. He worked for the companies “Levi 9 Global Sourcing” in Novi Sad, “IT Excellence” in Belgrade, “Intens” in Novi Sad and “Reach Everywhere” from New York.

As a remembrance of his great humanity, extraordinary intelligence, wholeheartedness, and unbelievable energy, the Fund bearing his name has been established in order to guide students towards positive values.

The Fund has an aim to allocate a monetary award to a student of the eighth grade of the Primary school “Miroslav Antić” who has achieved the best results in Mathematics (or Physics or Information technology science) in the course of the primary education.
