ISRSF - US Embassy(US Education Fair)

US Education Fair September was a very busy month for ISRSF! On top of our endeavors at UI and Andalas University, we also attended the US Graduate School Fair 2015. This event was organized jointly by the US Embassy and LPDP. It was held twice, first on the 17th of September at Universitas Gadjah Mada, Jogjakarta and at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and @America, Jakarta on the 19th. The fair was held because currently  only 20% of LPDP awardees get accepted at universities in the United States. With that in mind, the US Graduate School Fair’s goal was to increase acceptance rate of Indonesians, especially to top tier universities.

What is ISRSF? ISRSF Foundation Profile

The Indonesian Scholarship and Research Support Foundation’s main objective is to cultivate a new generation of world-class Indonesian scholars and provide on-going support for innovative research and knowledge on important societal issues. ISRSF believes that a deliberate effort focused on producing committed scholars will significantly increase the number of Indonesian academics who are not only devoted to teaching, but also to path-breaking research and publication. To achieve this important goal, ISRSF will recruit, train, and graduate twenty innovative scholars focused mainly in the social sciences, but also doctorates in law, business, journalism and communications, and development studies. Each year until 2016 we will select four talented Indonesians who show great potential to become leading scholars. These Arryman Fellows will spend one year conducting research, studying English intensively, and taking graduate classes for credit in preparation for doctoral studies. Arryman Fellows are then eligible to receive six-year awards from ISRSF as Arryman Scholars to pursue their Ph.D at Northwestern University in Chicago, USA.
