At a ceremony today at the office of the Indonesian Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP), academic leaders signed a Memorandum of Understanding between LPDP and Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, USA.
The Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of Andalas University held the 2015 International Indonesian Forum for Asian Studies (IIFAS). The event, which was a first for the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences to organize, was held on the 29th and 30th of September at Andalas University’s Limau Manis Convention Hall. The 2015 IIFAS set the theme of the regional and international effect of the ASEAN Economic Community. The event also included a tour of the city of Padang and demonstrations on Minangkabau’s rich history and cultural heritage.
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.
