I'm not sure what "more" you're referring to within the context of this discussion:

The FSA State University scholarship is in her and her brother's name but was funded by her parents, not by her. Their parents named the scholarship after the siblings, and it is run by the FSA alumni association; the siblings otherwise have nothing to do with the scholarship and neither have any other relationship with FSA Univ.

As for her web site:

    It's esthetically pleasing.
    She's writing a fiction novel (The Plague Dance) for children about medieval events.
    It appears that she's never visited any archeological site after she finished school.
    She's a good photographer of Nature (no archeology).
    She tweets.

Her web page has the tagline, "Writer, Researcher, Archaelogist". I'm quite sure most of us can come up with our own taglines at least as impressive as that.

Now, having said that, with regards to pyramids in Bosnia, I agree with the following statements she made in her doctoral dissertation (Merrell already posted a few of these):

    Semir Osmanagić’s site in Bosnia relies upon what I call ‘smoke and mirrors’ performance and participation.

    There is no true ontological evidence of prehistoric pyramids in Visoko; there is no material evidence of an ancient Bosnian supercivilisation.

    ...the site is critically supported by the public and many credentialed ‘experts’ because they actively want to participate in the construction of meaning, value and national symbolism in a post‐war country.

    While the economic and social benefit of the pyramids project is very much real, the authority that lies behind this claim of pyramids—and behind the people who insist upon it—is ultimately unsustainable.

    ...people like Semir Osmanagić are forcing the nonhuman actors in this site to play very specific roles in a theatre of ‘doing science’. Objects like rocks are being inappropriately mobilised to represent ‘pyramid artefacts’. When these objects are no longer mobilised by participatory actors, when they lose their significance in a narrative of post-war Bosnian social reconstruction, then they will lose all authority.

    Authority is a cumulative process, and in the case of the Bosnian Pyramids, that accumulation will run out of steam at a certain point of time."
